Probably not just because its another step. I would love to one day have my own little shop where I could park and also cerakote. But I would most certainly agree this is the best way to go about it. I bet the cerakote would hold up much better on the park as well.
I only need to finish welding up the rear sight and Im also going to add a F type sling weldment to the front sight, which I also still need to pin.
I figure Ill knock that out this week and let my guy have it for next week to do the coat job
What part of the country are you in? If you are in the Houston area you can come by and use my parkerizing set up.
