Clear Cerakote

(I am not sure if this should go here or somewhere else)

This is my first experience with Cerakote. I am not sure of how long I should wait to see the real advantage of coating the gun but I would say that after 700 rounds and carrying it for few days I am quite pleased. Not even the smallest, faintest scratch. The Cerakote was applied when still new.




The other thing that I like is that it is absolutely neutral. Today I had the opportunity to compare it side by side with our latest addition, no cerakote but same finish, and there is no way to tell the difference.

That looks like the old clear cerakote trick to me.

Wink Are You Sure?

This thread reminds me of one time, while working for the phone company, the area construction office sent me out to handle a customer complaint. I went out and made contact with the customer, a very nice woman. She stated that when Bellsouth's master contractor placed a buried cable on the right of way in front of her home, they cut her "invisible dog fence". Very seriously, I looked at her and said, "How can you tell?" She was stunned for a second and a bit puzzled, then it dawned on her what she had just said to me. She smiled and we both had a good laugh!! I apologized and told her that I just could not leave that "lead in" alone.

I had a crew from our master contractor dispatched, they located and repaired the damaged wiring and the customer was satisfied.

Back on topic: Your coated pistol indeed shows no difference from a non-coated pistol. Hopefully, the coating will continue to protect your firearm from any undue wear. Be sure to keep us up to date as to how that works out. The longevity of the coating and it's protective qualities could be a serious merchandising point in favor of the process!!

Thanks for sharing!!

I had the Clear Cerakote applied to my SCPHD also; in addition to color.

Don't know if it helps, but sure didn't hurt it.

I've had two pistols Cerakoted and have been very happy with both. With clear you never have to worry about it showing wear marks.

If you don't mind me asking how much did cost. This would be great for a clumsy old geezer. Not me , I'm just saying that it would be.
