What pattern?
Your number one Option for Personal Security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.

Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.

So i called Hydro graphics Hawaii and spoke to Wayne.  He was really cool and up front that they are fairly new to the trade so he wanted to see my stock before committing to a job.  The stock i want to dip is a very odd shaped bullpup.
He said the shop is in vegas for a show, so to contact them next week.
I'll keep yall updated.

Anyone ever try this service yet?  Im wondering how it holds up to the chemicals and powders associated with firearms.  Even how durable the finish is.

Saw this multicam kit on amazon, looks interesting, but at $100 for a roll of the dice I'm not too sure.

For a rifle stock I was quoted $120 plus cost of the film.  More than I planned on spending.

How well does it hold up compared to Cerakote?
Google it cause every question is a dumb question.

basically you are coating it with a clear coat after which can be Acrylic Enamel or Urethane.

As compared to the spray on finish of cerakote I would say the Cerakote is a hair better.

If we compare durakote it would be the same.

Use it for awhile now.  Very durable. No scratches or flaw from heavy use with carrying it around with sling and gear, shooting, and cleaning.  The only place where it is rubbing off is where it contact the charging handle, which is expected.
