TM15 media blasting and Duracoat/Aluma-HydeII question

So, my TM15 is in semi-rough shape and I was thinking about either buying a small, benchtop media blasting station, or just having it blasted by a local company.

Afterward, I'd be interested in doing a custom paint job, but which would be better, Duracoat or AlumaHydeII? If it's Duracoat, I'd probably have to send it to someone, sending the cost up quite a bit, since I don't believe I can get the tools, myself.

Alumahyde, on the other hand, seems to be inexpensive and suitable for paintball.

Does anyone have an opinion on this matter?

And for the record, I'd repaint the TM15 in a chaparral/terrapat theme, since most of the fields out here have scrub/brush and not much year-round green.

duracoat. I've done quite a few of them. Check out my sig. Duracoat is pretty tough.

Only had experience with Duracoat myself. Worked with Conlee Custom Camo, great company. Only thing I'll say is that the overspray can get inside some of the small holes, for example the power button and need to be manually sanded out afterwards.
