I agree, but that's subjective, personal preference. This one will have FDE furniture and controls - should look pretty cool.

You're an animal when you lift copious amounts of weight, while being serenaded with machismo wind chimes!

I've used Moly with good results (not as good as oven-cured Cerakote) but not the Cera-C, so I didn't want to comment. Interesting to hear your comments on how this stuff holds up.

I just rattle can my ARs with a combination of mist and direct spray of coyote brown and FDE to give them that camo look, get rid of the black rifle look. Let them air dry several days.

It's pretty tough man - I couldn't wait and put together my Legos yesterday, 2 days before the full 5 day curing time. The gas block *severely* applied friction to the barrel, and no bare metal was seen. This may be where being a shitty, "it's too thick" applicator is a benefit! LOL! I had to use a rolled tube of sandpaper on the mag release plunger hole, and the safety holes, but it took 30 seconds. I'm a fan - no different than paint, to apply and way tougher. They say it's more abrasion resistant than anodizing. I'm doing a scope next.

Been using mono-epoxy rattle can for over ten years.

Rustoleum Appliance Epoxy Enamel makes a super-sticky
base coat. Top it with VHT Caliper paint if super-glossy
black is not the objective.

Has worked well on everything from a black (that's the
freshwater version) MinnKota trolling motor, used in salt water,
to daily belt-clip-carry/IWB-with-no-holster, frequently
sweated-on, 9mm.

Any concerns about difficulty pulling it apart next time - as in, tight fit now from still too 'sticky' vs. thick application?
(Picturing the potential for heatgun/torch and a lot of swearing )

It's not "sticky" - you can handle it after an hour, you can ship parts (if you were an applicator) after 24. The chemical reaction just takes 5 days to complete, but you don't notice it. All the friction points will just wear in - pulling it apart isn't a problem.

Used a Green Scratch Pad with 91% Isopropyl, then soaked a Micro-Fiber cloth in it, and wiped off all the pad grit. Then did a last rub down with a dry Micro-Fiber. Wore gloves. Taped off all glass, and after the coat flash dried (touch it with gloved finger = no residue), I rotated knobs, lenses, and pushed buttons so it wouldn't "paint shut like a window". Make sure yours are water resistant before coating
