Re: Full custom Tikka
The shroud, bolt handle and plastic parts were painted with an airbrush and cured separately at a lower temperature than the barreled action that was painted with a HVLP gun. They turned out a little more gold than bronze, it's subtle but still different. I've Duracoated alot, but this was my first Cerakote. I don't know what caused the diffrence for sure, but I feel that the airbrush flashed off a little and caused the different shade. I offered to refinish them but the customer liked the contrast and said to leave it.
