    No wonder the surface is uneven: it is cringing...

    Is there any info regarding which specific user-applied coatings are approved by Crane or are compatible with the various factory finishes that appear on the pistols?

    I heard that! lol On a serious note, I'm pretty sure that tac barrel ended up with the same finish as current production Mark 23s.

    In the mid 90’s, Crane supplied a lot of Bowflage to make black weapons blend in. It wasn’t the most durable paint, but a wipe down with acetone made it easy to change colors.

    Thanks, renovate5. I had forgotten Bowflage. Haven't seen it for a couple decades.

    What about the teflon-bearing Dow Corning touch-up/repair compound? Do you recall what that was? The pistols I have handled had such a thin outer sheen of it, the stuff looks more like a polish than a paint-like spray-on coating.

    I’m familiar with the Dow Corning silicone / moly based lubricants that are good for o-rings and leave a thin film sheen on surfaces. Not familiar with Dow’s PTFE (Teflon) based products.

    The silicone based products form a thin film that imparts hydrophobic properties (repels water), and makes the surface easier to clean. But if you want to apply a semi-permanent coating like Bowflage, you’d need to remove it with a solvent and rinse before painting.
