    Ceracoating

    A couple of quick questions. First, will the Ceracoat finish adhere properly to stainless steel? And, secondly, what should it cost to have a small pistol done in Ceracoat?

    Thks!

    Yes Cerakote will adhere to stainless steel just as well as to carbon steel and aluminum.

    How much it will cost depends on who you have process it and whether they're factory trained in the correct applications process.
    Note that Cerakote is VERY specific as to the correct process to insure proper adhesion and durability.
    The process is FAR more then just bead blast with something, spray on a coat, and bake somehow.

    Most suppliers will charge to disassemble your pistol, so if you feel competent to do so yourself you can save money.
    Note that usually a firearm needs to be FULLY disassembled. For more details on what they need, contact whatever service you choose and discuss it with them.

    If you look on Cerakote's web site they have a tutorial on the correct application process and a list of factory authorized and trained companies who offer it.

    My first choice would be APW-Cogan. They're probably the best all-around gun refinishing service of them all, and they offer Cerakote.
    With Cogan you KNOW it WILL be done right.
