Our painting process is a lengthy one. If you have not done research on Cerakote Firearm Finishes, please do so. We also use KG Gun Kote.

We mainly use Cerakote for our painting needs but also use KG Gun Kote. Keep in mind that all pieces that are Cerakote’d or KG Gun Kote’d need to be baked in the oven. This in turn means rubber cannot be done unless we use their air cure versions in the color(s) you want.
First and foremost we believe you must know that these coatings are not the “Magic” finish that will protect your firearm from anything. Even though the coatings can withstand almost any chemical, can still scratch. Scratches should not happen with little pressure but if you drop it on the 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 the finishes to achieve the best adhesion, sandblasting the gun / firearm pieces is highly recommended. This also allows the paint to not interfere with different tolerances of the weapon.
Some of the finishes can be applied to a gun / firearm without the original finish completely removed. Some of the factory finishes on the market today are very strong and thick. Prepping these surfaces enough for the Coatings to adhere is another option which can add to the ruggedness of the coating and in case a scratch or something occurs, black will show through rather than silver.
