Kimber won't coat my K6s black.

I just called Kimber & inquired about coating my 2" bbl K6s. They replied that no they couldn't do that. I find this very interesting. Oh well, there are others out there. Any suggestions on a top notch coater/coating?

Top notch coating? I like Cerakote. Or sell the one you have or keep it and buy a K6S DC model, it comes with a Black DLC finish, MSRP $1,155.

Kimber's K6S model line includes a all Black "DC" and what I call a "Two-Tone," it is really the CDP (Custom Defense Package) it has Black DLC frame and brushed stainless barrel and cylinder and small parts.

Have you seen these two models?

I like the black also, it seems the brushed stainless finish on mine isn't holding up too well.

2sharp2 Yes I've seen both of the black/part black Kimber models but I'm happy with the K6s I have. I just want it black. I'll probably take Hawker800's advice.
