Cerakoting Service

Cerakote Price List

PHONE 817-500-9168

Disassembly / Reassembly Is always on top of the Cerakote coating prices. It usually ranges between $25 – $75 depending on the Gun and difficulty. 
Call for accurate pricing.

We have a $50.00 Minimum.
At the present time we are running between 4 – 6 weeks out on single or multi color jobs already broken down.
We are also running about 6 – 12 weeks out on design jobs and some jobs that require brake down and reassembly
These time frames are AFTER we receive your project in the shop.

We do try to carry most Cerakote colors but unfortunately we cannot carry every single one they make.
That being said, Cerakote colors that we do not normally stock will add an additional $35 to your order.

Are you the world’s worst procrastinator? Good news if you are.

Tight Tolerance Parts and Markings:

We do not coat sears, springs, bores/chambers or other tolerance critical or high-flex parts. In addition, we do not media blast scopes or other optics and, as a result, there will not be as good an adhesion of the Cerakote to those items.

TOLERANCE: For standard firearms applications it is often inadvisable to coat both pins and pin holes, as the resulting one (1) mil thickness of the coating when applied to rounded surfaces creates increase of two (2) mil to the part tolerance and four (4) mil (.004) when both hole and pin are coated. This is also applicable to auto-pistol slide and frame fit, such as on tight-fitting 1911’s. We typically plug or mask holes and pins and only coat the pin ends. However, we can coat pins and holes and then custom fit these parts after coating for an additional charge. We recommend hand fitting and lapping for 1911 pistol slides and frames as this will yield a precision fit and can help to tighten looser fitting slide/frame combos.

MARKINGS: For receivers, frames, slides, Picatinny rails which have painted on or lightly laser etched markings these markings will be lost during the surface preparation and coating unless they are machine engraved or stamped. If these markings are of great importance we can mask over them, but those areas in and immediately around the markings will not be coated and, as such, will not blend. Manufacturer’s serial numbers will be masked at no additional charge where needed or coated where possible. Some manufacturer model numbers, name etc which are laser engraved will be masked over. This is per BATFE (ATF) regulations. Please consult us for specific requirements.

Cerakote H-Series:
H-Series is the most durable of the standard Cerakote family of coatings and provides the best performance in hardness, wear and scratch resistance, adhesion and rust resistance. It can withstand heat up to 500f – 600f degrees and comes in the widest range of colors. Therefore, we use the H-Series wherever possible. However, it’s a two-part heat cure finish and, therefore, cannot be applied to optics and other items or substrates which cannot, or should not be cured at the required temperatures.


RUST RESISTANCE: Cerakote™ finishes have been tested in salt spray and full emersion and have withstood beyond 3,000 hours in salt spray and hundreds of hours in full emersion testing. These results outperform other finishes by over 10x. This makes Cerakote™ finishes the clear choice for marine environments and other environments subject to high humidity and salt water environments.

WEAR RESISTANCE: Cerakote™ finishes can withstand over 5,000 (5,212) wear cycles per mil (.0001). The Tabor wear test uses an 8″ abrasive wheel applied to a metal plate coated with 1 mil thickness of the Cerakote coating. In addition, Cerakote’s Coefficient of Friction is 80% less than stainless steel against stainless steel. So, when one or both moving parts of a firearm are coated you can expect a significantly longer product duty cycle or service life.

ADHESION: Cerakote finishes have an ASTM D3359 rating of 5B and can withstand a 180° mandrel bend rotation test around a 1/4″ mandrel and a ball bearing impact test of 160 inch-lbs with no cracking or loss of adhesion. This is significant performance given Cerakote’s 9H pencil hardness, which is the highest hardness rating in the scale.

HARDNESS AND SCRATCH RESISTANCE: ASTM D3363 is a 9H pencil hardness and 6H scratch resistance.

FILM THICKNESS: 1.0 mil (Cerakote DFAC “Dry Film Anti-Carbon” is .25 to .50 mil)
