Brownells GunKote Finish
Hi Guys: Did anyone used Brownells GunKote spray in a can with good result? Any tips on how to use it? The info I got from Brownells is not very helpful because I want to re-finish my slide with it. Thanks!

You will get better results if you buy the stuff in liquid form and use an airbrush, even a cheapo from Harbor Freight. Spray cans just don't give you much control, they sputter, etc. It can be done but the chances of getting runs and other problems are much greater with a spray can.

I coated several guns using Brownell's Teflon/Moly... with practice, I could prevent any runs - but you better be sure you can get coverage on one steady pass! You don't want to hesitate or slow down because it's coming out of that spray can at a heathly clip - for this reason, it is almost impossible to get any decent coverage on a slides' internal rails or breechface...
I kept buying the aeresol cans convincing myself that I could learn to "get it right".... so after much experimentation, I went and bought a really good airbrush to GunKote with - there is no comparision to the difference it makes in both application, end result and durability. It's kind of like the difference between painting a house with a fine bristle brush versus using a broom... the broom will cover everything, but the detail "cutting in" work gets a little messy...
