I felt comfortable, both the width and texture are perfect. You should try it bro!

Try it? I've got it on 5 of mine! I love it.

When you cerakoted your weapon, what did you use? I mean what type of cerakote did you use? The bake on or air dry? I did notice you said you had it baking. I am interested in basically copying your color to apply to my own AR but I was wondering how you did it. Also did you bead blast the metal before you applied the cerakote? Or did you just scuff it up/ sand it?

What are some places that you would recommend to send it to have the cerakote applied professionally but not too expensive.


More prepared than most. Less prepared than many.

Who was this directed towards?

If you were referring to okdonk's right above. His is done with the "H" series, which is the bake on. The color is a custom blend of mine. And it was sandblasted before coating. The prep work before applying Cerakote is pretty tedious, but is absolutely necessary. I got into it because I had most of the necessary tools at work already ie. sandblasting cabinet, air compressor, paint booth and ventilation system. All I had to buy was a good airbrush and the mixing tools. It's definitely not a cheap process, but in my opinion the results are well worth it!

I took apart and re coated my 300 BLK pistol Friday evening. Put it back together on Saturday.

It was burnt bronze.

It's now Smoked Bronze (this is a custom 3 color blend) the one in the back is my PSA build which is burnt bronze, just to reference the color difference. I can't have 2 builds the same color now can I?

You mean oven wise? Let's just say it's not an oven. They're not tall enough to hang longer parts in. But what I do use has a programmable timer and digital thermostat that I can set and go home.
