    I ask because the barrels in an FNS do tend to get rather hot with rapid or sustained usage...
    Not sure but I know they dip wheels and valve covers and I have seen quite a few rifle barrels dipped also.

    Seeing them dipped and seeing them much later, after dipping, may be informative. You should be able to tell us how the dip holds up under use in a couple of months. Keep us informed!

    Will do. I didn't need to dip the barrel because it isn't seen when installed in the gun but I did it for practice and to have all the pieces match. I was impressed at how durable this stuff is. I had to sand some of it on the tip of the barrel to get it to fit back in the slide and it took quite a bit of sanding to get it off.
    From what I've read it's pretty much permanent. I have two pistols and an ar15 lined up for dipping since my friends saw this one.
