Re: Cerakote vs Gun Kote (Matte Black or O.D. Green)

Shawn, thanks for the pics. If I go with the O.D. Green, I still want something that is not as bright. If I can't find that, then I am just going to stick with good ol Matte Black. The stock I will be using is the McMillan A-5 with the Woodland Camo Pattern, the colors are Green, Black, Brown and Tan. I will keep looking, I saw a Rifle with Mil Spec O.D. Green Gun Kote, it had the right look. The rifle I saw with the Mil Spec O.D. Green Gun Kote was on G.A. Precision site, click on Rifles Available and the rifle is called the GAP Crusader. If I were to go with a O.D. Green, that's what I would want it to look like. I am sure you will give me some ideas. Have you worked with Gun Kote? Once again, thanks for the pics, and when you get my 338 Allen Mag, please give her a hug, [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]LOL.

Yea I am susposed to have 4 BAT actions in the next week or 2, I can't wait to get some 338 AM down range. I have used most of the available coatings at one time or another. We will be sure to get the color you want.

Re: Cerakote vs Gun Kote (Matte Black or O.D. Green)

Thanks A bunch Shawn. I am leaning towards the O.D. Green look, I just need to see some more pics. Like I said before, I think the Mil Spec O.D. Green by Gun Kote will be perfect. Lets say I decide to go with the O.D Green, and I don't like it, can I have it re-coated Anyhow, I have time before I make my final decision. Once again, thanks Shawn!!! If you have any more pics, I would love to see more.

Thanks Shawn, I look forward to viewing some pics. Between Kirby and Yourself, this has been by far the best customer service I have ever had. Once again, thanks, and I look forward to seeing some pics. I think with the right O.D. Green and the Woodland Camo Pattern stock, this will be one awesome looking rig.

Here is the same green on my 260 match rifle, as you can see it is hard to pick a shade from a swatch or photo. This green was shot from the same batch as the 300 Ultra above and baked the same time temp etc (yes, those things will effect the colors tint). We should hit on a combo you will like the easiest thing would be for you to pick a color and also give a comparison, like you want it to match the green in the stock. I find that matching a color in the stock with the metal makes it look like a project not an after thought.
