As long as you take the time to do a good job it will look good, I've done Duracoat on four markers so far, and I haven't heard anything but good things.

btw. Duracoat has to be airbrushed on

anno will last longer, but you cant get the same types of designs and its more expensive.

A good paint job will look good and you can make it far more customized than any anno job. Use good paint, make sure you take the time to prep the surface before starting and between every coat. the minute you start to ruch the paint job, you basically ruin it.

i agree with grendal also look into gunkote similar to duracoat but i think its easier to do and yes i have worked with both. gunkote is also a thinner coating duracote is more like paint and you have to worry about getting it in places where fit is an issue you don't really have to worry with gunkote. although i would have to give it to duracoat for color selection but if your going for ninja flat black gunkote all the way its like a black hole absolutely no shine and really easy to get a nice even coat.

If you want a very intricate design appearing on the side of the gun then airbrush would definitely do the job...but keeping it clean would be the next task.

I've received a few airbrushed and coated guns over the years, got pics of some of them lying around somewhere....
