    I've been trying to get it too, just haven't been able to.. Cerakote is a pain.. just a little less or little more hardner changes the gloss level, for HK's I stick to duracoat

    The glossyness is controlled by the ratio of hardener, more you use the glossier

    My problem is the shade of black rather than glossy/matte

    I noticed HK MP5 receivers are more in the glossy side

    Yes I know, but I'm talking mix to the next... I shot some king coilovers and bypass shocks, there was 6, my oven could only fit 4, mixed the same, I went 15:1 and just by spraying at different times and wetness they weren't even close to matching in sheen. Same batch of graphite black and hardner... I e been a custom auto painter for over 10 years, I can spray candy paint like no other,BUT Cerakote has given me fits. The option to match is maybe try a mix of the glossy 1911 black and mix with graphite or Armorer black.. or tinting graphite or Armorer to match...

    Duracoat makes a DIY spray that is "HK black" Never used it personally, but saw it on other guns....looks just as good as any cerakote application IMO.

    Duracoat matches great... and is like the real HK finish, just isn't as durable as cerakote

    Never used Durakote ... not to go off topic too much, but how well did it fair in terms of wear?

    Is Durakote resister to acetone?

    Duracoat is automotive industrial single stage, so paint stripper and acetone will eat it up...
