We had been custom painting competition firearms for a long time and mainly on just stocks and then by many request we started coating metal. Actions,barrels, frames,ect.
We had good success and nice turn out but with technology and product development we are alway’s geared up to try something new. We started getting alot of request for Cerakote. Well all i have to say about that is that. We were very impressed with the product. I like the fact that after a couple of hours of oven cure that this product is fully cured and ready for reassemble.
What had really sold me on it. After coating a 1911 frame in Cerakote just after it had cooled off and removed from the oven with a super nice looking finish our gunsmith went on to reassemble the gun. Standing at 6 foot 4 this frame had a long way to fall. Yes he dropped it on the concrete floor ! Doesn’t often happen but accidents do happen from time to time. As he was bending down to pick it up i was putting my apron back on and was prepared to take it back to the bead blasting cabinet and re do the job. To our pleasant surprise there was not the first mark on it no scratch chip or anything. Now if you have a Cerakoted gun i wouldn’t recommend throwing it across a concrete floor but in this case the motto cerakote has “the worlds strongest firearm finish” had convinced us !
