About This Course:

Having a plain black rifle is boring.  To really express your individuality, add some color.  If you are a hunter, add a camouflage pattern.  If you have an older firearm, bring it back to life with a proper coating.

Duracoat, Cerakote, Krylon, etc have the ability to increase the aesthetic value of your gear while helping to prohibit rust.  Although to some people it sounds difficult, it is actually fairly easy and doesn’t require a ton of expensive equipment.

Course Topics:

  • Types of coatings

  • Types of patterns

  • Surface preparation

  • Stencils

  • Brushes and alternative tools to create patterns

  • Color selection

  • Equipment and area setup

  • Disassembly, taping, and hanging 

  • Coats and layering

Equipment Required:

  • Painters drop cloth at least 3′ x 5′ in size (canvas preferred)
  • 1 Aluminum AR 30 round magazine (standard GI issue type) (We have these for $10 if you do not have one)
  • Rubber gloves

All paint, thinner, paintbrushes, and tools will be provided.

While we will make every attempt at being clean, it is recommended you not wear nice clothes.
