That looks sweet. I'm doing my G20 with durakote on frame and barrel, Titanium Nitride on slide. I found gold mag base plates and Glock sells a gold extended slide release.

Here is the G20 frame after curing for 2 weeks. Still waiting on the slide and extended slide release to come from the Glock Store. I have to say that the aluminum magazine butt plates are the best. I used to have to bump the mag with the palm of my hand to get it in properly, now a light push with a finger snaps it into place. They're kinda tricky to get on but once on they're a big improvement over the plastic factory plates.

cerekote is superior is to duracoat colors cerekote has some where around 100 but we do custom mixes leaving us with even more color choices as far as polymer parts that just means special care lower blast temp different prep longer cure time on a lower temp setting we have done many glocks for customers as well as other poly pieces guns we own some of the guns that have been done and they have held up great ! As long as you prep properly you will not have any problems as a do it from home sort of thing duracoat may be the better route but long term i think cerekote would definitely be the way to go. https://va-firearms.com/Media.php check out our page to see some of the work we have done

Cerakote is not a ceramic coating. It's paint. So is Duracoat.

Bill, Cerakote is a Ceramic Coating. Please do some more research at cerakoteguncoatings.com it is not paint. It is an oven baked ceramic coating sprayed thru a HVLP gun.

Ceramics cure at thousands of degrees, not in home ovens. Ceramics do not come in cans or bottles. While Cerakote may have ceramic particles suspended in it, it's still just heat curing paint. No matter how you spin it, or what you call it it is what it is-paint. While it's a durable coating, it's ceramic infused, heat curing paint.

Once again bill. Cerakote is not paint. It is a ceramic coating. Please call nic industries for product knowledge
