I am sure there are 50 million threads like this, but I was too lazy to look... lol...

Well I am having my CDP re-coated and have decided to go with a Cerakote... Is the Cerakote pretty durable? The smith told me it was a lot better than armorcoat and the KimPro coat...

It's not tougher than Armor-tuff if that's what you mean. Usually good enough for most people's needs unless you do a bunch of holster presentations from kydex. It all depends on who does it on the quality so I'd recommend Mike Cywrus from accurate-iron, he's in your neck of the woods.

Cerakote is one of the stronger spray on finishes. What colors are you having done?
I am having my CDP done all black

That is who I am going to have do all my work... Having my CDP Pro bobbed, re-coated all black, and having the barrel flush crowned...

if it's carbon steel, parkerize it before Cerakote.
It's on my CDP, so I don't know if it is or not... I am kind of ignorant when you get into that...

Holster presentations will wear Cerakote fairly quickly if that bothers you.
Personally I prefer IonBond, Melonite, or even hard Chrome.
