“...I wish they had specific what paint they were using.,
I am having a heck of a time trying to find oil resistant paint.
Anyone out there give me a clue?...”
Krylon always works. Alumahyde is a good choice. Duracoat is a more professional approach. Nothing will work if you don’t prep well. If you don’t get every molecule of lube or oil off the shootin’ iron, it won’t hold up.
right now in SOF- Hunters Speciality is the preferred paint since it is removable. Most guys now are using Krylon due to a better selection of colors and H&S is harder to find and requires repeated applications (not very heat resistant). A brass wire bench grider brush removes it if you need to check it for cracks for PMI’s etc.
There are no real oil resistant weapon paints right now, even duracoat has limitations.
