I read on here a while ago about a gunsmith that was being slagged off and classed as a 'Painter' because he does a lot of Ceracoating.
I now know why he gets a lot of business ceracoating
A while ago I bought a 6x 42 'scope that needed a lot of TLC so I had it re-gassed and sealed but although it was as clear as could be, on the outside it looked like a tatty bit of pipe.
There were a few spots that turned out to be corrosion so no matter what I did it still looked as if it was fit for the bin.
However I wasn't going to give up that easily and thought Ah ! Ceracoat, so contacted James of Jager SA and asked for his advice.
Yes he could do it but it seemed like a bit of a big task due to the pitting caused by the corrosion.
I sent it off and kept my fingers crossed.
Well today the Postie knocked my door and asked me to sign for a package - yes, my scope.
I am not any good at posting pictures but I'll get round to it later as I am busy at the moment mounting my 'as new looking' scope on my .222.
It looks absolutely fantastic with it's nice new crinkly coat on all parts except the nomicular and the turrets which must have been carefully masked off when being processed.
So 'Painter' well done, you have done a marvellous job and it will set off my, also barrelled by you, .222, oh by the way the 'Rubbish' Bergara barrel you put on for me has proven anything but rubbish or substandard too.
Thanks again for job well done.
