    I have a friend of mine who just did up his 1911 with some Wheeler Cerama-Coat he picked up from MidwayUSA, and it turned out really nice. I'm thinking about picking some up myself. Feels good and has a nice flat black to it, almost like Stove paint. You do want to make sure you degrease REALLY well before applying. He got a very minute amount of flaking towards the front where he missed some dust and or grease.

    breaks up the pattern of the weapon and you can remove it as the seasons change and you need different colors.

    Default my gun coatings experiences.

    FOr metals I love KG GunKote. It does have to be baked on but the overall finish is superhard. It does not fill in blemishes in the metal at all though. It is a very thin finish, if properley applied it should be about .004 thick when cured, I do alot of guns with it and I coat the internals as well as the external surfaces. For plastics nothing beats Brownells Aluma-hyde II.

    For the guy with the pitted revolver...If your going to gunkote it those pits can be filled in with JB weld before it painted over. If done properly knowone will ever know. Heres a few pics of an 870 bolt that was repaired with JB.

    Here is the 870 bolt that was coated with Gun Kote over the pitting.



    This is the bolt after the repair, before Gun Kote.



    after KG




    Heres a few pics of some KG and alumahyde guns.


    Mossberg 9200 in Gun Kote OD Green


    Aluma Hyde II


    Aluma Hyde II again.



    KG Gun Kote on the barrel and magazine.



    Another 870 I did in KG Gun Kote. The green one is OD Green Satin amd the tan one is Flat Dark Earth.
