Hunters and shooters, instructors, in fact virtually every individual that use and own a firearm or firearms, makes sure that they look after their guns, pistols, and rifles, bolt-action or other options, to ensure these last for many years and that they are not prone to rust and other damage.

Of course, you want to know that your firearm remains in good condition, is assured of great durability, and has proper protection against the elements such as, say, damp or rainy weather conditions as these are often the conditions one wants protection from so that the firearm remains rust- and otherwise damage free.

A great solution is the application of a protective coating that ensures the firearm is not exposed to the elements and oxidation that causes corrosion. There are different products on the market, one of which, Cerakote®, has enjoyed a great following since the 1980s in terms of the number of firearm owners that have turned to this product for protection. There are other companies such as DuraCoat as well that offer these coatings, some of which enjoy their following and reputation.

These gun ...
... coatings and finishes are often ceramic-based coating that is mixed with a hardener and applied to the surface of the firearm to act as a type of paint and sealant that offers protection for your gun or rifle or another item that you feel can benefit from such processes.

In the past bluing was, for most, the way to protect their firearm; however, when compared to newer processes it falls short as it is not moisture-proof – which the newer options are. Most firearm owners will agree that their worst fear about keeping their gun or rifle in top condition is the onset of rust. The best among these products, such as the earlier mentioned Cerakote, is a coating that offers protection, and in addition to the protection, it offers it is also a finish.

Ceramic parts are used in the creation of these coatings to ensure a hard, tough surface that offers protection against wear and tear, abrasion, and, of course, rust. Some of the leading manufacturers these days make sure they offer their coatings in different colors to cater to a greater market. For example, ladies are often adventurous and may choose bright colors such as, say, pink, or blue – or any other color that takes their fancy if it is available. Men may be less inclined to go for these dramatic colors and stick to darker options like a dull green, or brown, or gray. However, there are no hard and fast rules and individuals choose what they prefer.

As a rule, these coatings are applied by manufacturers or gunsmiths with the knowledge, experience, and the tools such as the applicable spraying gun. Very few individuals will succeed the first time to do a proper job and therefore they leave it to the professionals and the experienced such as, say, the retailer they buy from.

It always has to be remembered that these people are the ones that apply these coatings and finishes all the time, and that, therefore, they understand every last detail of what to do in terms of being precise when they take the firearm apart when they prepare the surface onto which the coating is to be applied, how to cure the parts afterward, how to cool them down and how to make sure they do not miss any spots on the parts as they spray.

It is good to know that there are services out there that can assist the firearm owner with this process, a must for everyone that wants to know their gun or rifle enjoys great protection from the elements.
