AR-15 Cerakote Painting Inspiration

With the AR-15 rifle being one of the most popular across the nation, you’re bound to have one that looks just like someone else’s – and where’s the fun in that? A lot of gun owners take pride in having custom, unique firearms. If you’re looking for a personal touch for your AR-15 rifle, you’ve come to the right place.

Why Cerakote?

Cerakote is a polymer-ceramic composite coating that can be applied to several types of surfaces, including metals, plastics, wood, and polymers. This coating bonds to the surface of almost any material, creating a resistant and almost impenetrable barrier. Cerakote is a popular choice amongst firearm owners because of the benefits it provides for guns. This tough coating protects firearms from corrosion, chemicals, weathering, drops, and scratches. Tested and proven, Cerakote is the industry leading firearm coating.

What kind of designs can I pick?

Our expert armorers will disassemble and reassemble your AR-15 rifle if necessary to paint the pieces correctly. It might look something like this during the process:

Whether you’re looking for solid colors or patterns, our experienced painters can make your dreams a reality!
