Cerakote?

Anyone have any first hand experience with this? I searched but came up empty.

Thought about it but prices have kept me from doing it. Do some background checking on companies that do it though. They should have an FFL.

Thank you both, I will Google them. I'm not really worried about a drive, more interested in peoples experiences with it. I haven't personally seen one, but have a few plans. I am looking into the white snake look on my XDS or a digital camo on the DPMS.

Cerakote is amazing. It's not expensive at all, Brownells sells the 4oz kits for like $40 and that's enough to do probably 4-5 rifles and a couple handguns.

Now, if you're wanting intricate designs/camo, I'd probably pay someone to do it. For simple camo jobs and solid colors, DIY is the way to go. Just make sure you do it with good light. It's so thin that it takes several coats for full coverage, and it's easy to miss spots.

15' White JKU- 2" lift, 35" tires, Gibson MM exhaust, etc.
