If you haven't applied a Cerakote finish to your firearms yet, now's the time to take care of that. Cerakote isn't like your traditional bluing, which has to be reapplied on a regular basis. Cerakote is a ceramic finish that's applied directly to your firearm. Once applied, you'll never need to worry about a new application. Here are just four of the reasons you need to have Cerakote applied to all your firearms.

Customize Your Firearm

If you spend any time at the range, or hunting with buddies, you know how difficult it can be to pick your firearm out in a crowd, especially when everyone around you is carrying the same make and model. If you want to make sure that your firearms stand out in the crowd, it's time to invest in Cerakote finishes. One of the great things about Cerakote is that you can choose from a wide variety of colors and designs. You can also select a custom finish.

Reduce Friction Damage

Friction can cause serious damage to your firearms. Each time you fire your weapons, friction occurs, especially where the slides and hammers are concerned. If your firearms get a lot of use, friction can cause them to wear out faster than they should. Unfortunately, friction damage can interfere with the accuracy of your firearms. Cerakote finishes form a protective seal over your firearms, reducing friction damage, and preserving the firing mechanisms.

Eliminate Scratches and Dings

Whether you carry your firearms in a holster, or in a carrying case, there's always a risk of damage. No matter how careful you are, there's always a chance that you'll drop your firearms, or bang them up against something. Holster carry can increase the risk of scratches and other damage. Once you have Cerakote applied to your firearms, you'll eliminate the risk of scratches and dings.

Avoid Body Oil Issues

You might not think about it, but the natural body oils on your hands can pose a serious risk to your firearms. In fact, body oils can eat away at the metals, especially if you don't clean your firearms after each use. Cerakote helps you avoid issues associated with body oils. That's because the ceramic coating creates a seal that prevents oils from soaking through to the metal. As a result, your firearms will be protected against damage caused by body oils, no matter how often you handle your weapons.
