    Just enough, and never enough
    Duracoat is a fine product for refinishing and it can be done yourself relatively inexpensive. The breakdown of the weapon and the cleaning and sanding are the most laborious part of the whole process. After shot show this year, I became much more of a fan of cerakote. The process includes baking but the finish is much better, it is almost like ceramic. http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=330703
    There is some good info in this thread you might want to check out.

    checkout Midway for users experiences.
    I found it very helpful.
