I am one of only FIVE Iowa factory certified finishers and am the ONLY certified finisher in Northeastern Iowa! Unlike other shops that just purchase the product and apply it, I made an investment in your firearm by becoming factory trained.

While at Lauer Custom Weaponry I learned tips and tricks, and frankly, secrets, about how to apply DuraCoat.  To say it just as we were told during our training, if you haven’t participated in the factory training, you’re more than likely doing it wrong!  

Why Choose DuraCoat® Firearm Finish?

JB Guns is a factory certified DuraCoat finishing facility.

DuraCoat Firearm Finishes are the finest firearms finishes on the planet!  DuraCoat can be used to refinish a firearm back to its original shine and luster, or to give it a completely new look.

Over 53 camouflage patterns are available, as well as custom camouflage patterns to your liking.  DuraCoat can be combined to make any color in the spectrum in whatever sheen you prefer.   When I am finished with your firearm you’ll have a unique, durable, corrosion resistant finish that you’ll be proud of for years!
There are lots of options when it comes to DuraCoat.  Please call me with any questions you might have and I can help you decide exactly what is right in your application.

DuraCoat provides:
 - Outstanding abrasion, impact, chemical, and corrosion resistance

 - Huge selection of colors, sheens, clear finishes, unique one-of-a-kind looks, camo
             patterns, and old world technology recreations

  - Versatility - most DuraCoat® products can be applied to synthetics, ferrous metals, 
            stainless steel, alloys, wood, etc.

 - Can be applied to all types of guns including, but not limited to: handguns (pistols,
            revolvers, etc.), rifles (semi-automatic, bolt action, lever, etc.), and shotguns
           (semi-automatic, pump, break, etc.) as well as non-firearms like knives, hatchets and
            even Yetti cups!

!!!!! NOTICE  !!!!!

Since we will be keeping your firearm for several days, it will, by law, be logged in under our federal firearms license.  Whoever drops off the firearm must pick it up.   If that person can’t pick it up, then federal paperwork and a background check must be done on the person picking up the firearm.  In most instances this should not be an issue, but if you have any questions or concerns call us and we can explain this further to your satisfaction.
