What to Expect from Your Painted Firearm

Keep in mind that all of the different pieces that are painted or coated using Cerakote or KG Gun Kote must be baked in the oven to set. This, in turn, means rubber cannot be done unless we use their air cure versions in the color(s) you want.

First and foremost, it is important for you to understand that these coatings are not the “magic” finish that will protect your firearm from anything. Even though these coatings are capable of withstanding almost any chemical, they can still be scratched. Scratches should not happen with little pressure, but if you were to drop your firearm on rocks, hit the side of your brick house with your rifle, or have a tight-fitting Kydex holster for your pistol, there will be some wear.

In order for your custom gun painting finishes to achieve the best adhesion, sandblasting the gun or firearm pieces is highly recommended. This also allows the paint to not interfere with the different tolerances of the weapon when you go to use it.

Some of the finishes can be applied to a gun or firearm without the original finish being completely removed. Furthermore, some of the factory finishes on the market today are actually very strong and thick. Prepping these surfaces enough for the custom firearm coating to adhere is another option, which can add to the ruggedness of the coating. It also means that, in case of a scratch or something occurs, black will show through rather than silver.
