I have an older AR-15 stripped upper and lower that I am looking to build from, but they were allowed to remain in a moisture rich enviornment (basement) for an extended period and could really use a new finish before I put the work into building a gun around them.

I was wondering if anyone here offered or knows someone who offers a refinishing service using Dura Bake or similar ceramic impregnated epoxy finish. While at some point, I'd like to learn to do this myself, I don't have the time to devote to that part of the project at the moment.

If you offer such services, please contact me so we can discuss.

BTW: I'm in Southern, NH and don't currently have an MA LTC, so I can't transport a stripped AR lower or lower in MA.

PM lsbbigdog on the forum. He does both dura coat (air dry) and cera coat (air dry and baked). I have seen a bunch of his stuff and he does a great job.

Cerakote is not hard to do if you have the tools.
Media blast with a certain grit media.
Clean
Spray
Bake

I actually think it might be ok for you to come into MA with a lower.
Federally they are considered firearms but MA does not.

All the firearms pictured here were Cerakoted in my oven at home.
Tactical Gray on the 870, the AR and the M&P.
FDE on the AR
