    Well finally put out a coated Black Powder rifle. We figured since we could not make this finish fail in regular fire arms testings we felt the need to expand to the Black power shooter. We know of no other test that would push this product to it`s corrosion limits. As we all know being lacks with a BP rifle is not something to do, after a day at the range it is most crucial to clean your weapon that day or you could wake up the next day to rusted seized hunk of steel.

    So we took a well worn and seasoned in-line B.P. rifle prepped it to proper spec`s coated and baked it, and handed it back to the owner. Now he a BP league shooter so this will definitely take the finish to it`s max limits in a small amount of time, the owner has been instructed to simply swab the bore and screw in breech block as the finish can not be properly applied internally to the barrel and the breech is stainless steel which will rust under these conditions.

    We want to see how this stands up to the abuse that is why you see it in this section of TSC.

    Range reports should follow weekly.

    The goal is to make it possible to lighten the cleaning schedule for the BP shooter, if it fails you will get the facts that it failed. If it passes you hear about this also.

    The reason we choose a seasoned gun was to see what internal and external parts received the most abuse and in close tight fitting hard to reach area`s.

    So it is" game on" for Cerakote to see in the up and coming weeks if it can handle the abuse of the most corrosive product known to shooters.
