Paint, Cerakote or something else?

Awesome job!

You are quite an artist. Took me months to quit stewing and just create.

Wow! Nice work-on all of the above! My gunsmith asked me what I thought about coatings about a year or so ago and did I think it was feasible. . Told him I really had no idea, I had seen some really good work on some guns but I can ill afford to buy much of anything these days plus add in ammo costs, optics, mounts, etc. and I basically didn’t have a lot of use for it, personally. Told him he’d probably be better off asking other folks.
Well, he must have gotten the answer he wanted as he jumped into it with both feet and says he now does three times as much coating work as 'smith work! I may now have to commission something with him using some of that neon paint!

Nice.
Anything special about coating the optics?

Thank you! Nope. Acetone bath and a scotch brite. I don’t reccomended doing the lenses covers, the rubber is a little thin and the cerakote will crack easily if you take them on and off a lot.

Given the history of such weapons, I am betting your groupings are similar to this… :rofl:
