    Brownells Aluma-Hyde II

    For those who have used this on their weapons, how well does this stuff work?
    How is it on holster wear, corrosion resistance, and high temperatures?
    Thanks,
    Dave

    Good stuff, follow directions to the T. Keep in mind it takes a long time to dry. Also, even though they state it works on some plastics it hasn't fared well on many, namely pistol frames. Otherwise it's very durable when properly applied.

    I've only used it on plastics and it has worked pretty well. As mentioned though, they aren't kidding about the cure time. If you handle it before it is completely cured, it WILL come off.

    I used the Coyote Alumahyde-II to finish my Surefire M900. It has held up extremely well. I sprayed it almost six months ago, and the only chips in the finish are from dropping the rifle in gravel. I ran it through a 2-day carbine course in the rain last week, and it did not affect the Alumahyde-II at all.

    I did my M&P frame in OD green. The only wear I've seen so far after roughly 100 trips through my G Code (for a G19, BTW) is on the edges of the rail and the front of the trigger guard. It'll take a touch up, but I'm not going to bother until I can an M&P specific holster. I haven't seen any accelerated wear or flaking from cleaners, but I'm a CLP-only kind of guy.

    It has held up much better than plain old Krylon. Of course, the Krylon was dry in like 10 minutes. The Aluma-Hyde took 3-4 days to get to the point where it wasn't tacky.

    If you buy a can, buy extra nozzles. You'll need'em.
