Rifle coating
« on: March 27, 2019, 06:52:13 PM »

Is there any real world results on coating types? I've explored several types. Some expensive some uber cheap. A local nut case even used engine enamel and an oven.

Like to try and get a color close to Hogue's gilley suit green...

My 9 year old daughter won a 243 this year with a Hydro dip of any color she wanted.  The gun was all black to start with.  Its pretty dang impressive how it looks now.  I dont remember what it dip costed but it wasnt bad.

Cerakote seems to be the standard now by which all others are judged. I don't personally have any firearms coated with it but have quite a few friends who do and they seem to prefer them to their non-coated arms. Can't cite any examples though of where it has proved beneficial for them in a real-world scenario. I would imagine though for hunting where you're in weather or perhaps extreme climates that a coating would be beneficial.

Here in Alaska, where the weather can be a little extreme, Cerakote is the go to firearms coating.
