    I have a question for the addicts. On higher end 1911 pistols how do you feel about the Cerakote or similar finish? I have to admit I have mixed feelings myself. Do you think it is something worth offering? I have to say what brought this to my attention again is seeing a thread with a pair...

    We seem to be in a kind of Golden Era when it comes to new and highly effective weapon treatments and coatings, with DLC (and it's application-type variants and dubious trade-names) seeming to get the most attention lately. Personally I really dig the Melonite + Cerakote and Parkerizing +...

    Does anyone do their own cerakote coating ? I'm told it's not that difficult.

    To start off with HERE is a great resource on the different types of contemporary gun finishes. The two primary motivators behind factory & aftermarket finishes are APPEARANCE & CORROSION RESISTANCE. Some do one much better than the other. Some do both reasonably well. The purpose of today's...

    I have a Nighthawk GRP Recon which I'm thinking about having cerakoted in multicam. as I'm thinking about colors, I really like what they did with this Guncrafter X2. Does anyone know what colors they used here? Screenshot_20200930-170950_Chrome by TheFiveSolas posted Oct 8, 2020 at 5:42 PM

    I have a Colt Combat Commander long the worse for wear in stainless. I'm thinking of having it bead blasted and then a Cerakote job. The gun is stainless with the accumulate wear marks of nearly 30+ years. I'm kinda leaning towards a simple black slide and keeping the frame stainless, or matte...

    So I’m needing to refinish a Nighthawk that is currently Cerakoted. I am torn between Wilson Combat black Armor Tuff or Nighthawk Black nitride. These are the only 2 black finishes that I would consider. They both cost the same to refinish the whole pistol. I like both, have had both, and know...

    Does anyone know what color this frame might be? I think it might be coyote tan, but the E-Coyote tan sample that I am looking at is more darker.

    I have another newbie question. Just say, I have a LNIB DW Valkyrie Commander with the duty finish and I value this at $1300. If I send the slide and have it professionally Cerkoted, will that decrease the value? I like two tone guns and I'd leave the frame black and probably have the slide...

    I’m looking for a good refinishing shop to send a 1911 for a two tone (black slide over gray frame) Cerakote finish job. All suggestions appreciated. Thanks Bill

    Hi all - longtime shooter new to the forum and relatively new to 1911. I'm no pro... but a good enough shooter to have realized my groups at 25yds shrink by half when I use a decent 1911 vs my SiG Legion.... Although I still have all my SiGs loaded in my SHTF Bag, I've been shooting and carrying...

    Looking to do a two tone job on my Les Baer Premier II. Will do NP3+ on the frame and deciding between the matte or satin black on the slide. Robar site doesn't have great pics / explanations highlighting the difference. Can anyone share experiences / pics of 1911's that are confirmed matte...

    With my latest pistol getting Cerakoted I thought it time to do a review for those who haven't had any experience with it. Due to formatting differences between forums I'd have to redo everything except the words for each, so here's a link instead...

    I am switching things up a bit. Decided to part with this Knights Armament 16" Mod 2, no reason to have two. It has been CeraKoted in coyote brown. It shoots extremely well and is very smooth. Round count is 360, only quality ammo. Weight is 6 pounds 11 ounces as pictured, unloaded. It will be...
