    Hydrodipping/Cerakote

    Who's ever had it done on their firearms? How's it stand up to wear and tear compared to standard cerakote? Also has anyone new come up in the cerakote world since the passing of Victor? I've used Greystone in the past and their work is flawless but their price range was on the steep side and now that I have a mortgage I'm looking for a more affordable alternative.

    Cheers in advance

    Might sound cheeky but what about Blueing, it looks good with a walnut stock.

    Hydro dipping is not that durable in my experience when compared to durecote or ceracote. If your really want the fancy patterns of hydro dipping I believe there a clear duracotes that could done over it.

    Red dot rifles in Dorkland has done fantastic work for me on a few items

    Blueing and wood is for the olden days, looks nice but modern options outproform. I hate rust and swelling wood

    Do you have a few examples of work done in the past by any chance?

    In your opinion what have you found better out of the duracote and cerakote? Have you only used red dot rifles? If so what's their pricing like?

    Cheers
