What are the advantages of using this over Cerakote?

Ceracote is ceramic based. Moly is Teflon based.
Moly creates a smoother, slippery finish.

Doug, just wanted to say thanks - 3 Sig 228's and a Berretta 92 back and looking great.

No reservations on Doug or his work.

Thanks for the great work and quick turn-around.

You had it for only a weekend and it looks wonderful.

For everyone viewing, Doug did the lower and bolt in MolyResin black, to match a duracoated black upper. The lower/bolt were done in a KG white.





A bit fuzzy from critter fur in the garage [dog and cat: they get everywhere], but the work is VERY satisfactory. Next time I need a refinish, this will be on the short list!

Are you able to remove ceracote and how much is that prep charge?
Just not happy with the colors I chose.

Doug,
Can you refinish a Glock slide and polymer frame? If so, what colors are available? I'm thinking a darker brown or perhaps some shade of gray.

If the frame can't be done, then I will probably just have the slide done.

I'm replacing sights with a plain steel Dawson rear and fiber optic front. Do this before or after slide refinish?
Thanks!

I can remove cerakote. It is no charge extra as I prep them by media blasting anyways.

Doug, do you media blast carbon slides as well? Also, wondering what the prep is for aluminum frames? Thanks!

I do blast carbon slides and alluminum frames as well. Just a light blasting on alluminum to keep from going through anodizing.

Folks I just got my 10mm back from Doug and I cannot recommend him enough.
He did an amazing job. Quick communication and turn around time!
Good guy to deal with. Unknown to me Colt utilizes a plastic main spring housing so it could not be coated as it would melt in the curing process.
Asked if I could order a stainless housing and have it sent to him and he swap them. Said it was no problem. Took longer for the new main spring housing to get to him than his turn around time.
I had my 1911 refinished as the original cerakote job I was just not happy with it looked good when first done but after a couple years it has become dull and gritty.

Immediately after original completion (not Dougs work wish I would have known about him then)


A couple years later just looking rough for some reason.


I liked the look of the gun metal with black controls very much so I swapped the colors a bit from the original but I like the new look way better and still looks good with my VZs.



The pictures do no justice either just a crummy cellphone pic and it looks stunning. The gun looks much better in person.

Here's a shot of an ex-Israeli Police BHP that I salvaged a few years ago. The guy that originally finished the grip frame didn't cure the Cerakote correctly and it scratched, arrgh. Doug did a great job of modifying the Burnt Bronze to a more toned down brown (with little bling) like I was looking for, and a few of the control pieces. I added a C&S Hammer, it already has Trijicons, it shoots like a dream and looks fantastic.

Thanks again and more parts on the way shortly Doug!

That is a sweet HP! I really like the brown frame/black slide.
