    The new Cerakote H and elite finishes seem to be great! We are working with those finishes and will post about them soon.

    Cerakote or Duracoat over park is extremely durable when done CORRECTLY.

    We use Duracoat on our guns and have not had any customer complaints in its durability. NFA Review in fact had very good things to say about it after beating on one of our guns at their annual MG shoot.

    For Cerakote work, Blowndeadline did our demo D54SD in Multicam Black and it held up extremely well for the the 3-day Teufelshund Tactical MP5/UMP Advanced Operator Course. The only damage the finish took was on the stock backplate from rubbing against my belt buckle. It was minimal at that.

    Horror stories you hear on MOST finishes (peeling, flaking, etc) is from poor prep work.

    Did you really get a whole receiver/barrel/trunnion done at one time?

    I sent off the barreled upper for complete nitride.

    I'd like to just add that the firearms I've had done with GunKote, Cerakote, and Durakote were done by different but well known and reputable HKsmiths.

    I'm curious about the nitriding. Anyone know a good place to have it done?

    What would it run me to nitride an entire MP5?
