Mel, I may get in touch by phone Sunday, I have guy giving me his 700 for a "tune up". He wants a refinish, I can repark, or matte blue, but the powder coating may be a good alternative. What is the price structure, and color availability? I may also ask him if he likes the teflon finish. The rifle is currently painted over not so nice blueing. The stock is a OD green Choate, so green may be an option, or tan as a base for a camo set up. He is shooting about MOA with the factory barrel, so I am looking at a trigger job, and maybe a barrel, depends on his wallet an what he truly wants the rifle to do. Thanks for the info on gunkote he was asking about it, and I had not tried it.
