For everyone that has asked me where i got the cerakote done and my duracoating work. Here is some information. Gunnerm15 (Bill) does all my painting work. He is located close to the diamond in Richmond off of the boulevard. Everything gets bead blasted before coating, Then coated with an airbrush, and baked in oven. (duracoat isnt baked) He can only do pistol sized stuff in Cerakote but anysized stuff in duracoat.

Here is a link to how tuff cerakote is compared to other coatings.

its hard to tell from the pictures, is that a more matte or satin finish? It appeals to be pebbled slightly can you feel it? Never played with Cerakote so I am curious.

It is more of a matte finish. You can feel the texture but it isnt uncomfortable.

Does all cerakote come out like that or was that the finish you were going for originally? It looks good, and that pebbled finish really helps to keep shine down, just was wonderring if that was by choice or if it was something that happens everytime with that product.

It is the way i recieved it back from bill. I have seen it done slightly smoother. But this is going to be a range/carry gun so i like the finish.

may be a function of the bead blasting. I seem to recall it is supposed to have an effect on the final paint job. I just could not recall if it smooths it or roughens it.

I'll chime in on this one also. I'va had bill duracoat an AK 47 and a handgun slide for me. Both turned out better than I could have imagined. His work is top quality and very affordable.

I should have the other slide put together tomorrow. Had to take a break due to reloading and gun cleaning.

Alright guys. I have just over 100 rounds in each slide assembley, and 200+ rounds through the frame. The Cerakote is holding up amazingly well, even in the high wear areas like the slide, recoil lug, and the frame rails. Check out the pics.
