I was using a "Master" airbrush. Worked great for a few rounds. But it's done now. I ordered a Grex.

O OK. I don't even remember what brand mine is. I haven't even looked at it in a year and a half.

Pin holes? you talking about where the detents go? Or take down pins? Elaborate a little bit and I'll answer your question.

Any hole where a pin goes. Whether its the detents, roll pins for the bolt release n such or the take down pins.

Still not really get what you are asking here. But I will try to answer anyway. I do sandblast and spray the takedown pin holes, mag release hole, bolt catch hole..... I don't sandblast or spray Cerakote directly down detent holes.

Now on my billet Seekins SP223 receiver I plugged all of the threaded holes with little rubber plugs. There were quite a few.

I have had zero fitment issues with pins, springs or anything else after coating them. I think fitment is the question you were asking?

Got my new Grex airbrush in today. Since I didn't like the green I came up with I switched the color for this build. I mixed about 90% Burnt Bronze with 10% Graphite Black. I got the upper, lower, dust cover, trigger guard and hand guard coated. I should be starting assembly tomorrow.
