Outrageously overpriced! Another local shop does it for $100. End results are phenomenal.

C&C isn't even NE IL. It's more like W Central. Still over double the amount to do anything and have to ship the gun there and back.

I can't remember the name or the website. It's in Crest Hill. Seen a few ARs and an AK done. I'm impressed by the quality work for $100.

C&C is pretty much in line on price with the other companies I have checked online. I would be interested in taking a look at the business in Crest Hill if I can find a website. The do it yourself dipping kits run $100 so if I can get a quality job done for $100 I'm in.

Checked out the website, looks like they do good work. I wish they had some more common camo patterns available like shadow grass, MODB, Max4, etc. I have a black synthetic versamax sportsman that needs to get a coating before it turns to rust. KK have you had work done by CPC before or just seen it done? If it's $100 to do an entire shotgun I might be convinced. It would be interesting to see how well their camo dip holds up and how well it protects the gun. If it doesn't hold up that well, I may just get the kerocote to protect the metal. Never seen kerocote in person, anything like duratouch? And has anyone tried a $25 shotgun wrap from camo4u or mossyoakgraphics.com?

I haven't. An acquaintance has done a few and pretty slick. If you Google them, they get guns shipped from all over. Pretty big on AR forums. I have to drop off my 3500 soon. Weather took a beating on it the last three seasons and I don't want to get rid of it. I'm looking for longevity and staying away from dipping. I am going with cerakote. Camo gun to me is all hype. I need functionality over cosmetics. If cerokote stops water rusting my gun, so be it.

I like the way you think! If I could get my versamax sportsman done in cerokote for $100 I'd be happy. I leave it out of the case when not in use and I oil done after each hunt. Still got some surface rust and this is its first season

Is that cerokote? That is sweet looking. Didn't even cross my mind they could do colors other than black. I was also concerned it would be raised like duratouch but that doesn't look bad at all. I'm sold. Where do I sign?

Yes, it is cerakote. Go to cerakote's site and they can do any colors listed on the site.

I stopped in their the other day and she showed me a receiver from a 870 Wingmaster, looked good. They said all the parts have to be disassembled when brought to them and it takes about 3-4 weeks. She said their was a website to look at all the colors/patterns you could have done. Easy to get to, right off Weber road and Caton Farm Rd.

They seem to over promise and under deliver with expected times. Last few firearms I know that were done was less than ten days.

Stopped in on Tuesday. Current turn around time is around 7-10 days. And, who ever had their SBEII dipped black with gray and white skulls that gun will kill more ducks now.

Dropped my versamax off today at CPC. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. I didn't know how far my gun needed broke down so I wasn't prepared. I had taken everything apart except the bolt and trigger assembly. Basically if it comes apart, take it apart. They were nice enough to help out there because I had quite a drive to make it back. As for the color and patterns, possibilities are endless. (only complaint is the camo pattern choices, no name brand stuff like Realtree or Mossy Oak) But for color combinations, if you can think it up, they can do it. I went with a flat dark earth cerakote for the metal and a cornfield camo dip for the stock and forend. I will try to post some pictures when I get it back along with the full review.

Still haven't got it back yet. It was 3 weeks yesterday since I dropped it off. They must have got busy. Hopefully it gets done this week, I'm nervous about how it will turn out. Mostly my color/camo choices because I'm confident the quality will be fine. They definitely seem to know what they're doing there at CPC

Good thing I didn't try this during hunting season! I'd be shooting the 870

I thought you had taken one in. I never signed anything and they won't answer calls. Its a bit concerning but I haven't paid yet either
