Cerakote FAQs

What is Cerakote?

While a proper bluing is nice, it simply doesn’t compare to the benefits that come with Cerakote. Cerakote is a unique formulation, a sort of mixture of polymer and ceramic qualities, that will out-perform most any other surface treatment on your firearm, or anything else you need coated.

A Brief History of the M-LOK vs. KeyMod Debate for AR Accessories

Magpul industries released a modular system in 2009 called MOE, but they were noodling with the concept in 2007.

The standard quad rails aren’t comfortable to hold, but they work. Magpul wanted to make them [...]

Syria is the Deadliest Country in the World – Guess Which Country is Second

Everyone’s heard about the Civil War in Syria, tragic as it is. Over 50,000 lives were lost last year, mostly as a result of all the fighting. The media won’t shut up about it, even if CNN recently reported that the “media agenda” isn’t reporting on another matter much closer to home, that’s nearly as deadly, and knocking on [...]

Cerakote vs. DuraCoat – Weighing Your Options For the Best Firearm Finish

Measuring would probably be a better word. This isn’t so much a competition as a one-sided masochistic pounding, but I’m going to place this next sentence very carefully to avoid confusion. Cured Cerakote absolutely beats cured DuraCoat in every measurable respect with regard to finish quality, abrasion resistance, and overall toughness.
