Which Gander Mtn was this at? As far as I know they are sent out to another Gander store and they do the dipping. From what I hear it is top notch stuff. I believe they all wear off after time. You gotta use the wear and tear term loosely. If you are an avid shotgunner you are going to wear down the finish. I have seen many factory camo guns wear off after time as they are all dipped at the factory just like the aftermarket finishes.
No we haven't, but I bought a Benelli Nova in black and thought about having it dipped in Shadow grass. But, I didn't do it. I don't know if it would stay on that synthetic stock and forearm on the Nova.
<P>had my 870 dipped 5 years ago, it is holding up very well except on the sharp edges of the rear rifle sight, it has peeled slightly, but other than that it has taken a beating and help up very well $ 175 for the whole shotgun.</P>
