Cerekoting A Shotgun?

Postby Superposed » Sun Jan 19, 2014 8:00 am

I am going to buy a Winchester Super X3 20 gauge to used mainly for dove hunting and an occasional duck hunt. I am thinking of getting the basic Black Shadow model and having it Cerekoted. Has anybody had a shotgun Cerekoted? How did it work out/hold up? Would you do it again? Is there a tougher/better finish to put on a hunting shotgun? Any information is appreciated.

I had an sbe2 done by LMT, they are a certified ceracoat company so I would think they applied it correctly,, My two cents? It does not hold up well at all, within the first couple uses the finish rubbed through in the high spots, also anything that is held in place with loc tight like magazine tubes and recoil spring tubes came lose because you have to heat cure it at about 300 degrees, I sole the gun after a year, the finish looked GREAT, but no durability in my experience

I have an Ithaca Mag 10 done and it's holding up great!! I would have tho think that the way it is prepped determines how good it will hold up. A lot like some paints and such. I believe the gun should be totally apart and every part needs to be media blasted to rough the surface up a little so it "sticks" better. Just what I've heard from the guy that did mine. Like anything else, it's good when done right.
If I ask a question, I don't want your opinion. I want facts.
Don't tell me something you think, tell me something you know.
It's easier to say I don't know, than make something up.
Although, being a forum the next guy will know more no matter what.

I had my Remington 870 Cerakoted and I think it's one of the most durable gun finishes out there - AS LONG AS IT IS DONE CORRECTLY!!!

My brother in law had his browning gold done 3 seasons ago. He beats the crap outta that thing. Coat has held up remarkably well. I'd do it in a heartbeat.

I've had a M2 done in darkened burnt bronze cerakote and Bottomland dipped stocks and that stuff is beyond tough. I can assure you the folks that did the poster's gun that had problems either didn't prep well or did shoddy work. IMHO every waterfowl shotgun should come standard with the metals cerakoted. Tough as nails and lets face it they just look freaking sweet[THUMBS UP SIGN]

He did my 11-87 during the split. He did great work and service. I'll be using him again for my SP10 in the future.

I may consider buying black guns again to turn them into this!

It I can ask how much did it run you and who did you use?

It was $225 for everything that was done to it. The place that did it is local to me and they do first class work. They've done 3 guns for me and every one was top notch. I will not let anyone else touch any of my guns

There are 3 or 4 "certified applicators" in the Raleigh North Carolina area, anyone ever used any of these guys?

Maybe a dumb question but can an older blued shotgun with wood stock be done? Might be a sin, but i have an old wing master passed down that just sits for fear of ruining the finish and the lack of ability to blend in. Anyone have this done? Pics?

The 870 Wingmaster that I have posted above, has a 5 digit serial number, that was originally blued with a walnut stock and corncob forend. Cerakoting that old shotgun brought new life back into it, and I think it looks pretty doggone good....
