Cerakote? Want to buy a gun or a scope and some ahole has decieded to Cerakote why???
If it is blued re-blue it, stainless leave it alone. If a scope do not change the factory color....
I bet you drive a beige Camry.

Not "all people" do.
It is rugged fancy piece of glam for the gun that makes it (to them) look cool. It's their gun. If you don't like that pattern on their gun don't buy it.
But then of course I might be a 13 year old girl who reads alot of gun magazines, so feel free to disregard anything I post.
That's FDE actually.....
Because it's so operator! If I ever have the need to camouflage my firearm, I would rather krylon it to match the season.
Don't put up with that shit,buy new.
I have been known to rattle can some of mine,but then I have never outright sold one.
Gave away at least 50 in my life time,winding down in life and enjoy seeing smiles on a gift to a deserving friend.
Maybe it started lifevas rainbow titanium and cerakote was a huge improvement.

Yeah, need to keep it pristine so you can sell when you need rent or child support $$$.
Ahem. That's "Tactical Beige," sir.
Support our troops, and our veterans.

If people want to do things to their firearms or parts, I am all for it. I have done a few things to mine and will never part with them. Of course when you try to sell that same piece, you might not get what you wanted.
The wife was admiring a nice purple / pink two-tone cerakote she saw couple weeks ago. Considering it for her P320.
I'm gonna have to warn her though she won't get much on re-sell if she splits on me and needs to turn it over to pay the child support she'll be sending my way.
America, Land of the Free - because of the Brave
Very few people buy guns that they believe they won’t keep forever. That belief in turn convinces them that any modifications will have to satisfy only them and no one else in the future: “Ya know, I think the Mona Lisa would look better with a moustache,” or “Mount a Picatinny rail on a pristine original Whitworth rifle? Sure, why not? It’s my gun, and I’ve got a nice Tasco scope that would make it shoot better.”
Sometimes people also believe in naïve ignorance that something like refinishing a gun will increase its value (not that they’re planning to sell it, just that they now have a more “valuable” gun).
I, however, have become a little superstitious about making permanent modifications to guns. It seems that the more I do things like that, the less happy I’ll be with the gun in the long run. And years of experience don’t seem to help.
Not too long ago I bought a relatively expensive rifle, a new scope and bipod for it, and reloading dies and components all at the same time. Before I even shot it I had the bottom metal changed, but when I wasn’t happy with that I upgraded to a new chassis that was nearly as expensive as the rifle itself. Now the gun, fancy chassis, and four expensive magazines (three of which are still in the wrap) are on consignment at a local store.

Can I Cerakote my cat? He sheds too much.

"The Nazis entered this war under the rather childish delusion that they were going to bomb everyone else, and nobody was going to bomb them. At Rotterdam, London, Warsaw and half a hundred other places, they put their rather naive theory into operation. They sowed the wind, and now they are going to reap the whirlwind."
Because it's my shit and I'll do with it as I please.
Just your friendly neighborhood combat engineer.
I think it's comical when people think their home garage cerakote job actually adds value to the used gun they're selling. I have nothing against people doing it and think a lot of cerakote work looks pretty cool, especially from the pros. I feel the same way about home stippling jobs on polymer pistols. Now, that doesn't mean I won't try it myself on my guns. I just wouldn't expect to be able to sell them as easily.
Why? Because it's their toys, and they can damn well do whatever they want with them.

You have a problem with tolerance ehh?
I bought my first "colored" gun a couple of years ago. SP2022 in FDE.
Guy who sold it to me cheap said he reduced the price because it was ugly and no one wanted it.
Works for me!
