    kyguncoat.com

    Followed recommendations from someone on TS.com and a Benelli I sent looks fabulous.

    Tell them you heard about them from TS.com, I tried to get them to sponsor.

    The benefit is that it is the most durable spray on finish. The down side is that it is still a spray on finish. Compared to Duracoat it is MUCH more durable.

    It is also available in a ton of different colors which is another benefit to it. If you don't want a traditional parked or blued gun Cerakote allows you to customize the look of your firearm.

    I have two Perazzis Cerakoted by kyguncoat, one complete gun, one only receiver, they are pretty much one of the most durable finish you can get on a gun.

    Most Race gun shooters use it, Sig is using it too.

    Thanks all.

    Thanks Steve W. I was just going to ask if this is something you do to the receiver only or if you also do it to the barrel. Having this done doesnt affect the way everything fits back together? Do you have any photos? What if your gun doesnt have a removable trigger? How does the person applying the cerakote deal with the trigger area?

    Cerakote can be applied to just about any part except for the inside of the barrels.

    It can have some effect on parts fitting back together, after all you are adding a layer to the original metal surface. Usually the tolerances are not a problem though.

    If your gun doesn't have a removable trigger you ideally want to completely disassemble the receiver. Cerakote requires the parts be media blasted and the blast media has a tendency to get in every little area.

    There are many better finishes out there than Cerakote (parkerizing, anodizing, etc.) but Cerakote is the best spray on finish.

    Cerakote add 1/10000" to the face of metal.

    I have both detachable & non detachable trigger Perazzi done. Kyguncoat did complete disassamble and re assambly included in their $175 (two tone) whole gun price, barrel is tight, but fits. Trigger fits too. I didn't ask them to coat the trigger parts. No issue.

    I have both gun's picture, I'll post it later when I found the file.

    The non detachable trigger one is for sale now on TS, I'll bring it up now for you to see the pictures. This one is satin silver.
