Do you need a gun Cerakote, KG Gunkote, and parkerized?

Check out WeaponWorks LLC (http://www.weaponworksllc.com). I follow them on instagram and they put out some amazing work. Plus if you take a look at their prices I would say they are very reasonable for the quality they put into their finish work.

$155 to Cerakot a handgun. I have seen other places want almost twice that.

Thinking real hard about sending my Beretta Neos to them and have them do a Octagon camo pattern on it.


Take a look at their work here. http://www.weaponworksllc.com/#!our-work/c1tg

Thanks for the links TD, here is another gunsmith that does a Duracoat finish for reasonable rates.

Not too bad. The most I ever paid was $90 for a pink color that nobody would normally want. Of course that's not what the customer paid. Lol

I've got 3 shops within walking distance that can Hydro Dip, Duracoat, or Cerakote. Not knocking them, but the price of shipping and then paying to have the firearm shipped back and having to be transfered again if it's reassembled, just isn't worth it IMO.

If you are shipping your gun to a gunsmith (Which they are) for work then they can ship it right back to you. No need for transfers.

See Question #3. https://www.atf.gov/firearms/faq/gunsmiths.html

Filling out and filing the form 4473, and going through the NICS, what most people refer to as "transfer", applies to actual transfer of ownership (as per perusing the link TD provided).

You should never have to do a "transfer" on a gun you already own.

Key word, "should".

Disclaimer: not an attorney. Not an FFL holder. But the Q&A on the ATF site is pretty clear on when the 4473 is used, but TD's link deals more directly with this specific situation.
