Just to clarify...it wasn't the original finish that burned off. It was the FDE duracoat I applied. I think the Spartan 3 is one robust can. It's not user serviceable so it'll conk out at some point but it does the job and because of its heft, you can actually use it to whop someone on the head!I came very very close to buying one for my bren. Besides the finish burning off how do you like it?
