GUNSMITHING SERVICES: Cerakote Application, Single Color Application to M700, M70, and TIKKA T3 Bolt/shroud/knob
NIC Industries Cerakote is a porcelain based coating specially formulated for firearms. It offers a tough and abrasion tolerant finish with over 90 different colors available! Highly tolerant to solvents and chemicals, it has earned its status as a premier finish for many gunsmiths.
LRI has a sterling facility for Cerakote application. Our large capacity ovens are free of hot/cold spots that can muddle the finish and our paint booth uses filtered air to ensure your parts are free of foreign matter. We use top shelf Sata spray guns that are sent back to the factory on routine service intervals. The ceramic media in Cerakote is abrasive and wears the needle/tip when spraying at a high volume.
Our library of colors is extensive, but we do not carry every color offered. We are happy to special order a color not in stock, however this does have additional fees. The smallest quantity we order is pint size and the cost is split between you and us. The understanding is the remainder becomes the property of LRI.
As part of our bolt fluting services we offer custom Cerakote application as well. This is a "stand alone" service. Meaning you're not required to have your bolt fluted if all you want is to have your bolt coated.
Special ordering of colors:
Our library of colors is extensive, but we do not carry every color offered. We are happy to special order a color not in stock, however this does have additional fees. The smallest quantity we order is pint size and the cost of product/shipping is divided equally. Any remaining product becomes the property of LRI.

2nd Color Option:
LRI is a custom shop and that means we answer to your personal tastes. For fluted bolts a very popular variation is to have the flutes coated a 2nd color. This is a labor and detail intensive process as the bolt must be completely masked, leaving only the flutes exposed for the additional color application.
This is a service offer. You must send LRI your bolt in order to have this work performed. Simply annotate the color(s) you want, pay for the service as you normally would for a product, print the receipt, and include it with your bolt when you mail it in. We'll perform the work within in a few days and mail it right back to you.
Some ask to have their bolt parkerized prior to Cerakoting. While we are happy to do this for you, we've seen no benefit from it. Cerakote is a good product and stands up to normal firearms use quite well. Its not indestructible, but it does have the best tolerance to abuse of any sprayed gun finish that we've seen.
We've done thousands of these so your in good hands.
