    Most Cerakoters charge as much as the hard chrome platers. I would have the chrome finish done. It's much more durable.

    The individual would like a flat black finish. Some products from Brownells have good review, others are not so good.

    Is GunKote a good substitute?

    In that case, My suggestion is Ionbond.
    Again, around the same price, but a much superior finish. Search "Club Custom Guns."

    About $100 for pistols on up to $200 for some long guns and Two tone finishes. The cost is in the labor for the prep work. Detail strip, clean, degrease, sandblast, degrease again, some will parkerize and then coat and bake, others coat after the sand blasting. Then inspection for runs or flaws and any rework, then lube and reassembly.

    I just dropped off a Remington 870 Express 20ga Magnum that I inherited off at a local shop to get Cerakoted in a burnt bronze single color.
    They charge $120 for that,and they emailed me a 20% off coupon yesterday,it only cost me $103.91 with the coupon.

    I should get it back in about 3 weeks,then I'll post some pics.
