Cerakote pricing can vary by firearm and the work being done.

Absolutely. It won't chip, flake or scratch off. Tests have shown it more durable than traditional bluing, parkerizing or other finishes. It goes on ultra-thin, and you can still read logos, serial numbers, etc stamped into the gun.
First it must be fully disassembled--every spring, pin & lever. Next, all parts to be coated are soaked in acetone and then heated to draw oil and impurities out of the pores of the metal. This process is then repeated, as many times as necessary, to insure all contaminants are removed. Then, they are sandblasted down to bare metal. Finally, they are hand sprayed with the Cerakote, and heat cured for several hours. Poof, done.
We guarantee our work. We test each piece before it leaves, and if problems develop for any reason, we will re-do it. Understand that while Cerakote will hold up to hard use, it is not magic. You will see wear over time in the same places that you would see wear on any firearm finish--on moving parts (e.g. slide to frame,) holster wear, etc.
Nope, not at all. One point to note is that while the Cerakote is a very thin layer, moving parts in tight tolerance may "stick" a little until they are worked a bit. If we re-assemble the firearm in the shop, we do this as part of our process. If you re-assemble it at home, your best bet is to put a box or two of rounds through it to break all the parts back in. Of course, if that doesn't do the trick, give us a call or bring it back in and we'll happily make it right..
