I am about to send off my LCP and possibly PF9 to get refinished in cerakote. I am debating what color to get. Could you folks post a few pics of your LCP's and PF9's so I can see what looks best for my refinishing job? Thanks!
I've seen that in other forums. No idea. Maybe it's something like "subscribed" or "in before the lock".

I do not understand why people do things like this to inexpensive guns. I would have used the extra money to get a better gun in the first place. I have had blued guns for more years than many of you are alive and never had any issues with rust. Just run a silicon or oil rag over them every so often and you are good to go. My one cerakote Sig I used to own had the cerakote chip off in a small spot and showed scratches more than any other gun. The rail where I had my light was all marked up. I did not think much of cerakote and would never pay to have it put on an entry level gun.
Ruger hasn't exactly built a reputation for stellar finish. The finish on my black WC GP100 is turning out to be rather laim. I had my LCR refinished on one of it's return trips because it turned from black to funky brown. My LCP is mottled on the left side of the slide.
The WC has turned out to be a really fun paper pounder, though. What a beast!
There is a solution but we are not Jedi... not yet.
We have deep thinkers and stinkers in this group that could come up with a solution...
To each their own, I guess. I'm going to get my LCP customized with a fresh coat of Cerakote
A little honest wear on a LCP slide would not bother me much.
Here's a website with a lot of different Cerakote color applications.

send it to these guys and get the Nickel Boron finish on the slide. Stuff is very durable.

OP = I dont know a single thing about cerakote, but I love my LCP! It's a great gun. Sorry we aren't all rich like captain mustache up there.
