    Powder coating, Has any one had it done? What do you think of it? I am thinking of having it done to a 1100 with 2 barrels a 28 mod and a 30 full. The technician said he would tape all areas that I don't want coated and I have chosen a very black shade .

    bb,
    I have not done it but from watching American Chopper I learned that it is baked on at about 350 degrees F. Could that affect solder joints on ribs posts? Temper of the metal? You might want to look into that. Good luck. Let us know how it goes.

    After you have it powder coated take it and have it cryogenically treated to bring the metal molecules back in perfect alignment.
    Now I doubt it will matter much with a shotgun but with a rifle it's a theory of mine, you know the vibration or whip of the barrel as fired.

    But that's a different story.
