Brownells Lacquer Finish System

I'm looking at a P89 (to maybe purchase) that was very very abused by the original owner (or previous owner). The gun has since been "restored" using the Brownells Lacquer Finish System which is a rattle can system that gets baked on in an oven. Does anyone have any experience with said finish system as far as durability? I don't think it's as good as Cerakote but I could be wrong. I'm thinking it might be in the same line as Duracoat?

Thoughts and or comments ...

See before and after pictures ...

If you are looking for durability and abrasion resistance, use the Brownell's Gun-Kote finish. Not as many colors, the dark gray will come out almost black after baking.
It will complete with Cerakote for durability and maybe just a bit better then Cerakote on abrasion resistance.
I used it on carbon steel knives to protect from rust and found it to be very durable.

I guess i wasn't very clear, the gun has been refinished with the Brownell system. I didnt want to buy it only to have the finish come bubbling off.

Looks good from here. If the price was right I'd buy it. If the finish came off then I would ceracote it. Should be a good shooter.
