Cerakote, noun

1. Hard wearing stuff that goes on your firearms, looks ripper and keeps things in top condition! Flippin’ fantastic stuff.

Ok so we made that up. But we think its pretty accurate. Cerakote is a paint coating that when applied correctly forms a very hard wearing protective surface on your firearm.

Its more resilient to wear and tear and will prevent rust. That’s a major factor in the longevity and safe function of your firearm, regardless its from rain, mud and the elements in the field or moisture from storage.

Cerakote also gives you options to customise and personalise your firearm (see some of our examples below). You are only limited by your imagination – there is a huge variety of colours. We  can work with you to find the best colour match, including creating custom blends. Or to create a unique design incorporating multiple colours or patterns.

Once your firearm is cerakoted, you have much greater flexibility in future repairs and upgrades. We can Cerakote new components to match so they to blend in seamlessly with your existing design.  It can also be reapplied to cover damage or to change the colour all together if you decide you wan’t a new look down the track.
