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.

Watch early in the year when you are using bug juice. Any bug juice with deet in it will put a hammer on your gun's finish.

The stuff eats through the camo finish like termites through wood!

Chappy,

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.

Bigduck10 had a great point. I used bug juice and wasn't aware of the effects it had on camo finish. My factory SX2 finish is a lil marred but still shoots straight.

<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>
