painting the polymer

I have seen some pics of guns that have their polymer frames a different colour than the stock colours. I was wondering if these were painted, or if some other method of coloring was used. (as an example, I think we have all seen the pink digie cammo XD)

I painted the polymer on an XD and a Ruger 22/45 used duracoat for both.

You can get any external airbursh kit from a hobby store. I got mine from Hobby Lobby for $50.00 it comes with all the connections for the air cans or to hook to a compressor.

Duracoat and Gun Coat and Cerakote can all take up to 30 days to cure properly. I use Moly resin for the coating I am doing. It cures over night for the air cure and in the oven for the thermal cure.

I used a model airplane airbrush from Wally World.
I did my son's AR in wolf gray.

Dont you guys know about Krylon Fusion spraypaint...

Seriously, I have a .22lr that I sis the whole gun. The visible part of the bolt, the reciver, the barrel, the tock, the mags, everything.

It had held up great, even to hoppes#9

Now I did not consider this a perminant long term thing, but it has laster a couple (maybe 3) years, and the gun does go inthe woods hunting too.

wow, If krylon fusion works on the polymer frame I'm all for that. Truth be told I had wanted an OD green xd, but the only xd my dealer had the day I went to buy it was the all black, and me being me knew that if I had waited for one to come in the money would have been spent on something else, lol...So if I can just grab some olive drab krylon that would be awesome.

Id love to see pics of peoples guns that they have painted the polymer on.
