I'm considering using one of the home finishes that Brownell's offers for a Sprinfield Govt model. Can anyone describe their successes or failures with any of these products? Thanks.

I just finished the 1911 I was working on and finished it with the teflon moly. Next time I'll buy the pint can and use a spray gun. The aerosal can suck. They blop the finish on which is handy but makes it too thick looking. The lacquers don't hold up as well but they are easy to blend. If they came out with a fan valve spray can it would be better.

Thanks guys. James Beam, I'd love to see a picture. Please send it to [email protected] .

One question: What has to be done to prep the gun. My pistol has a parkerized finish. Thanks.

hay's i sent you a picture, let me know when you get it? your e-mail address was odd, with the spaces between the w
but i think it sent off ok. the paint in the steem is thicked while on the shelf, once that blow's out, it spray's perfectly. always test spray, befor applying any spray finish on any firearm. it cover's nicely with one coat, but as it says on the directions,two light coats. if the parts are pre-heated, it works like a charm.

Netlar: Thanks for the post. Is that the dark parkerized gray, or the matte black finish? Thanks.
