Anyone on here do Duracote for Stocks?

Looking for someone who could do a Digital Camo Duracote or Cerakote to my stock for a gun that I'm building. Will most likely be a Greybull Precision stock. Looking to get it done sooner than later (less than 6 weeks or so).

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Diy! It's not to tough, just don't take shortcuts

I could probably squeeze it in with another one I'm doing soon. Here's one in digital camo Cerakote I finished up this summer. I apply a coat of automotive clear over the Cerakote to take away the thickness feel and for better protection. $250 to do just a stock. 6 weeks is doable but I couldn't do it any quicker. I typically allow 1-2 weeks of dry time before I ship the rifle out after completion so the paint has some time to cure.
