New bake-ware finishes

My son and I were watching TV and they were advertising new cookware finishes that were ceramic & titanium and ceramic & copper. Very slick stuff but it looked tough as nails and they were using metal utensils and even a electric beater with metal mixers and they wern't scratching the finish. I realize it's TV but it got my son thinking

My son said, I bet that would make for a very tough metal finish on a rifle and provide a very slick surface. He's probably right and it will only be a matter of time before we start to see harder and slicker finishes for our guns!

Thoughts?
Distance is not an issue, but the wind can make it interesting!

    Probably be okay for external finishes, but anything that is fitted, coatings like that will probably be hell on tolerances.

    Those ads were probably written by P.T. Barnum. Somebody in our household (not me) got suckered into buying a frypan a couple of years ago from an infomercial that made similar claims. Now it's decorating a landfill somewhere in Lincoln County Tennessee. Even with a heavy coating of cooking oil, food stuck like glue, and the "space age" coating got scratched almost immediately.

    OTOH, Cerama-Coat from Midway bakes on to form a tough, almost scratchproof finish- - - -just don't coat anything with a precision fit.

    :jester:

    I've seen the ads too.

    But wait there's more!
    Sorry, I'm a hopeless sceptic.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    I wonder if Flex Seal would make a good barrel finish. :uhm:
