    Anyone here have any guns that they've had refinished in Cerakote? How do you like it and how is it holding up? Is it as great as they make it sound in the ads? Feel free to post pics if you've got'em.

    This one has been Cerakoted. I haven't had it back long enough to know how it wears.

    I just sent off my Tactical Custom II for cerakote re-finishing, hope it is all good! I read tons of online reviews and most customers seem pretty happy with it.

    Man he can work some magic. My Kimber is inevitably going to end up very similar after seeing this sweet baby all the time. :whistling:

    That's one fine looking piece 2740. What colors are those? I want to do a two tone combo on my Commander as well.

    Thanks. It's the same color that Kimber uses on their Stainless Pro Carry and Stainless Ultra Carry models. In a bright light, those aluminum frames are a slightly different color than the stainless steel slides. The 2 guns in the middle of this picture, is a factory Stainless Ultra Carry(with some slight modification to the barrel crown:cool:), on the left middle and the right middle is the above mentioned gun. The Stainless Pro Carry that Chuck Rogers golf balled and Cerakoted the finish on. BTW, he did all those flush crown jobs too. :thumbsup:

    Different lighting makes it blend differently.

    Here's the little Ultra before it was sent to Mr. Rogers' neighborhood to become a smaller twin of the Pro Carry. I'll post pics as soon as Chuck works his magic on it and sends her back home.

    I should be getting my slide/barrel back from him any day now. Going to be talking to him shortly to send the frame for golfballing. It's all your fault. :thumbsup:

    The slide and barrel are ceracoted. It has several hundred rounds through it and the barrel shows wear, but that's all so far. View attachment 199821

    I've never seen a Cerakoted barrel before. Will be interesting to see it stands up.
