    Default Refinishing MR762 in RAL8000 - Suggestions Requested

    HK Family,

    I am thinking of converting my black MR762 to RAL 8000. The thing is I want to do it 100% professionally. Does anyone have have suggestions for anodizing or cerakoting. Who is the best out there?

    Also - is there anyone that can laser re-engrave the original markings after the color conversion? Any shops recommended.

    This is the look I'm trying to achieve.

    Thank you!!

    I'd love to know who does anodizing.. you'll mostly see cerakoting though.

    The photo is from carbon scoring who is the photographer for atomic tactical. They have a in-house cerakoter. I would contact atomic tactical about who did the engraving job for them. Maybe they did it all.

    That color looks more burnt bronze than ral to me.

    *edit, I didn't see your thumbnail before, if that is the color you are looking for, that's not RAL8000
    some say burnt bronze, some say it isnt' regardless good luck with your search.

    I had mine done by an automotive finishing company that's also a certified Cerakote applicator. In hindsight it would have been wiser to have a firearms-related company do the work as it required me to completely strip down a rifle I was still very much new to. There were still a few things I couldn't remove and had to have masked off, so it wasn't 100% perfect but I guess good enough.

    The markings are pretty shallow so every attempt I have made to fill them in white have failed.

    It's still visible but it's hard to read because it's obviously all one color.

    I started a thread not too long ago asking about something similar if you're trying to replicate the anodizing color.

    Cerakote Burnt Bronze seems to be the closest "off the shelf" match for the "usual" appearance of H&K's tan anodizing which is often seen in conjunction with RAL8000 parts (and with the caveat that colored - and particularly tan anodizing is rarely 100% consistent in hue).

    This photograph was also linked to:




    The lower receiver appears to be Burnt Bronze, with the receiver extension appearing to be the factory color.

    Others also mentioned that H&K's "tan" anodizing may simply be Type III Hardcoat in a "natural" (no dyes) color.

    As others have mentioned, RAL8000 is also available in a Cerakote color.
