Has anyone here used cerakote to color their guns or accent kits or even heard of someone doing it? If so how did it turn out? And would you recommend it to be done? Is it a smooth finish and how durable is it? Thanks for any help!

An Australian store, cerakotes a few of their LV1's and GEO3's.

For durability, the thing is insane - the finish is interesting to say the least. You have to remember that cerakote is essentially ground up ceramic and epoxy. A gun does have to be stripped of anodizing first though.

I've heard of some success with hydrodip + clear cerakote over the top for some truly custom jobs though.

It really is not the best options for paintball guns. It is tough in the sense that is it is hard, and tough to cause a total finish failure with just drops. However it will scratch and scuff easier than expected. The biggest problem though is that it is fragile in the sense that it has no give. If there is any flex it will crack and start to flake off. I have been cerakoting for years for the motorcycle and automotive industry and I have done several of my own guns, but I would personally not use it on a paintball gun. It is great in the other applications but most would not be happy with it with this use.
