You do realize there is clear powder coat right? As in crystal clear?

I take it you have never seen a good powder job on a gun? Take 5 minutes to just look at some stuff and I'm sure you will realize its nothing like you are expecting.

I was merely curious about his plans to protect the marker, I did not once suggest powder coating the marker. Acrylic clears do come in a liquid form as well, which is what I was suggesting.

Yes, I do realize that. There is no point to arguing about how powder coating looks, like anything else it all depends on how well the job was done. I have seen very good powder coating jobs, but anodizing is more durable and offers protection internally as well where powder coating cant be applied.

I did not suggest he powder coats it in the first place, you must have missed that part for the second time....an acrylic clear would be the best choice for something durable and crystal clear. It would be as simple as anodizing the gun, polishing the ano out on the exterior or plastic media blasting the ano off the exterior (will do nothing to the tooling marks) then clearing it.

I am not here to argue, just offering a suggestion for a perfect exterior finish. If you guys feel the need to create an argument have at it, just actually read a response first.

I'm not looking to argue. Acrylic or powder coat are both just on the surface. I would just tend to shy away because they can chip. I have nothing against powder coating, duracoat, or clear coating. I have had brass guns done before. It's just hard to not go with color right in/on the aluminum.

It will be anodised and the machine marks will still be very visible as anodising does not cover up anything like powder coating, the aluminium pores are opened up by the process and the dye is absorbed into the metal not just laid on top like powder coat or paint.
