re: Cerakote cost? - tiddlesmcdiddles
yes I disassembled it and put it in my blast cabinet. I have used cerakote many times before and while it is an extremely high quality of product, it is very tedious to work with. this duracoat aerosol is pretty impressive and is very easy to use. I was just throwing it out there in the case you...

re: Cerakote cost? - tiddlesmcdiddles
I redid my A-Bolt a few weeks ago after it had developed rust also. I used duracoat aerosol, which has a "can within a can" design so you can release the hardener into the paint, shake up and spray on as if it were krylon. here is the result [img]https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/647/3181728878...

re: Lower engravings for SBR - tiddlesmcdiddles
may be a long shot but you may want to try a couple of local machine shops and see if they will do it. when I was getting all of mine done I called some trophy stores around Lafayette and they didn't want to touch a "firearm". ...
