    YEP! and they are cheaper to apply and less time consuming as well.
    I have a couple three pretty nice blued guns, the Dan Wesson 41 mag, the Dan Wesson 1911 are 2 of them.
    but for durability I don't think anything in my stable in blue compare to the beretta/ Stoeger with the bruniton finish, or the EAA witness and the tennifer finish and certainly the Taurus Pt1911 in the Cera Coat finish.
    all of course are coatings, not bluing.
    the all time best however is a taurus PT99 with a Z-Coat finish that is over 25 years old and has years of holster use and thousand of rounds down the tube and almost looks like the day i got it back.
