    So you're saying wax the metal, then spray Krylon on it? Wow; never would have thought of that. And it just wears back off with time?

    No, you have to strip the wax, if you have it on already. Degrease the finish and then spray on the clear coat.
    Battle of Wanat: 10 years ago last 13 July, 1LT Brostram was killed in combat killing the last enemy combatant in the outpost. The LT went to the point of decision and made the difference that turned the tide of the battle. The original investigation found the Bde Cmdr, the Bn Cmdr and the Co Cmdr at fault for dereliction of duty. If you want to see what a sarcastic silver star citation reads like, pull up the company commander's silver star.

    Oh, that's very different. Dunno if I could bring myself to spray paint (yes, I realize you mean clear) a fine blued finish. I'd have to see a couple in person, new and 5-10 years old. How does it hold up to cleaning solvents?

    This is several years old Krylon Maxx satin acrylic clear over flat camo paint. I just picked it up and inspected it. There is some chipping on the brass deflector and that is it. Original finish is holding up like new.

    I don't believe that I would use a clear coat over a "fine blued finish" however the G2 Taurus standard flat black finish would be a great option to try it out on. The anodized black on a modern sporting rifle also. Any older gun with an original blued finish would get a cold blue touchup from me. For a vintage blued gun with a good finish...then I might try carnauba wax or the "micro crystalline wax.

    Agreed, Czechbikr. I'd never put anything but oil, wax, or dry lubricant on something like this.

    ahh--Cera-Coat?
    got to ask why would you want to wax over Cera -Coat?
    gloss can be controlled somewhat by mixing ratio during application so my Cera-Coat buddy tells me, if you want super shiny blingy I doubt that Cera-Coat is your finish anyway?
