That looks nice!

I am waiting because the Duracoat makers told me that they are coming out with an OD green that is a dead match for the XD frame in a month or so. I will be coating my slide to match the frame on my XD-40 Service.

How durable is this coating? It seems to take quite a bit of abuse.

the coating on my XD frame has held up well, the slide reciprocating back and forth hasnt even scuffed the finish where it comes in contact with the frame.

I think it would look even better if you painted the pistol grip and stock and pink. ;)

By the way, your pics aren't helping with my patience on waiting for my bottle of wolf grey to get here.

Thats the best finish you can get on an AR in the world because it was applied by the best, your father.. Keep that rifle for the rest of your life then pass it down.

this rifle is never leaving my possession until my son (whenever that happens:D) is old enough and responsible enough to handle it. He is also going to be handed down my XD-9 the first pistol i ever purchased. thanks dad looks great.

Nice. I would have left some of the various parts black for added accent. Trigger, charging handle, mag release button, forward assit, and the trigger and take down pins. Thats just me however...good job :)

i always bump it but im scared to break it, i took my stock off a while back and didnt thread it in enough, oops, the detent pin popped out and got flattened by the bolt carrier, lol. my dad gets mad when i do this. lol i think he does. here are two vids. oldies but goodies. notice how i practice perfect gun safety keeping the barrel down range. its cool how you notice that you do these things without having to think about it. dont mind the whiny girl in the back thats my girlfriend getting blasted by the concussion. lol

hobo would you happen to know if the firerate goes up the longer you bump it or is it just me hearing things on the second vid.

I think the rate of fire is the same, sometimes you just get "in the groove" a little better than other times. The AR is probably not cycling up to it's potential since it has a buffer in the stock and a firm hold is what is needed to work properly (almost like limp wristing, if you know what I mean ;)).
I've got a MAK-90 that is just awesome to bump fire. Beeerrrruuuurrrppp!

Also, anyone that is considering giving this a try is warned to be VERY CAREFUL!

It seems pretty durable so far, although I haven't shot either of the 2 guns I've Duracoated.

But I did jam a screwdriver into the frame of this S+W Model 10 as I was re-assembling it.

You can barely see the mark below the S+W emblem. Didn't make it through the Duracoat to the metal. I may touch it up later. Color is #6 Parker.

Ah, so you're agalindo's son? Yeah, I saw the Wolf Grey XD in one of his other posts and was very impressed. I was also extremely impressed with the Hello Kitty job he did.

Some very nice work done on all of those!
