Resurrecting an AR-10

This AR-10 had been mistreated in its previous life. Someone tried to paint it a dark green with what appears to a lacquer paint, and did not quite hit the mark. The current owner asked if we could bring it back to life. We sat down with him and took his vision and I think we hit the mark. He selected a single color cerakote “Glacier Forge”. I will admit it is an amazing color. Right from the beginning we could tell it was the perfect choice. I will leave it up to you to vote. First image is before and the second image is after.

You can see all of our projects on our website as well. If you are looking for something Cerakoted or something coated with Hydrographics, reach out and let us turn your visions into something amazing.

Cerakote Vs Hydrographic

As you can see in the pictures both items have a covering on them. What is the correct covering for you? Lets get into the differences and the pros vs Cons of each.

Cerakote is a special covering that will adhere to plastic, metal, wood, and many other materials. The coating is a form of polymer-ceramic coating. The benefits to cerakote is that when applied correctly it will protect the under surface of the product you apply it to. This will allow your item to last for many more years protecting it from rust and scratches and damage from normal wear and tear. The color choice is basically endless. The fact that this item is so durable it is ideal for pistols and shotguns that have several moving parts. As with anything there is some cons to this items.

Cerakote even though how durable it is has some limits. First being the designs. With cerakote its designed for durability and there for makes it hard to create elaborate designs. Most designs use templates to make some designs or patterns. The problem is that cerakote being ceramic based does not like anything to stick to it after it has hardened. So you must complete the project in less than 2 hours when using multiple colors or it will just chip off. The second con is the price. Compared to hydro graphics cerakote is more expensive. You are paying for the additional protection and durability, however the paint is higher in price than the film for hydro graphics.

Hydro graphics is a film made out of polyvinyl alcohol. The film will dissolve once placed in water and sprayed with the activator. Once this happens it leaves the design on top of the water and will stick to anything that is placed in the water. The designs and the patterns are much more indepth than cerakote, however does not provide the protection as cerakote. Once the pattern is placed and all the clean up and touch ups are completed a clear coat will need to be applied to provide some protection from scratches and dings. Think of it as car paint. The clear coat on your car provides the same protection to your cars paint as it would for the film. With door dings and other scrapes you know that clear coat is not damage proof. The same is for hydro graphics. This choice is ideal for something you want to show off and gently use. Works perfect for a range gun, wall piece, or something you want to display. The plus is your choices to designs is only limited to your imagination. The plus to this is the price is lower than cerakote as well. You can also do shoes, crocs, kids lunch pales, and a ton of other items.

Cons is pretty straight forward. This choice does not provide protection from drops and scrapes. The film could be scratched if you penetrate the clear coat. This choice will not work for devices that have electrical components that can’t be removed. The prep work is a little harder than cerakote as well.

Both of these choices will bring years of satisfaction. Its just important to answer a few questions to decide which choice is correct for you. If you still have a few questions feel free to email us or message us. Let us handle taking care of the things you love.

Just shaking my head

As I sit here I really didn’t know what the title should be. I’m waiting to go to work looking through the news articles to read bull shit.

One article reads Ozzy Osborne is leaving America. In the article it says he is tired of the mass shootings. He is selling his house in California for 18 million dollars. Not two months ago he stated he was leaving California do you high taxes. We’ll I wonder if hiring 87000 IRS agents had anything to do with him wanting to go back to England. If he really is leaving from all of the mass shootings, I ask why can’t you give back to a country that has gave you so much. So many people has lived his music to include me. I never thought someone would turn there back on a country that has supported him so much. With all the money and influence you have you can’t help do something to stop it.

The answer doesn’t start with money it starts with people asking questions. Put your political views apart and start doing what the people did to build this country. The government will not fix this problem. They will continue to profit from it. You look at how much money was spent to benefit this government. The first question should be, what are you doing to protect our children? I promise you the security at congress and senate will be increased after Jan 6. Do you not think that costs money?

I just really wish people would think and start relying on each other to fix problems. As a veteran I know you can’t rely on our government, however history has shown you can rely on the American people.

We have came together during so many times of need. From 9-11 to ww1 and 2. National disasters that has effected people you didn’t know, but wanted to help. Do you not think the things going on in our country isn’t something that we should rely on each other to fix versus a government that does not listen.

On This Day July 22, 1943

On this day The American Seventh Army forces led by Gen. George S. Patton captured Palermo, Sicily. Gen Patton moved his troops across Sicily through August.

I don’t think anyone could argue with the fact that General Patton was one of the most famous and dedicated Americans in history.  He was a very tough leader and knew what it took to get a victory in this war.  I would not be able to imagine what Europe and America would look like if the war was lead by any other General.
