    Any links please. I've put jager in the search and it gives me nothing and I've searched ceracoat and ceracoat firearms coating and still at a loose end. Help appreciated.

    It all works out in the end and if it hasn't worked out well it isn't the end!

    Hi Martin,

    If you would like full details of the CerakoteŽ services please do get in touch. We are able to get the rifle picked up direct from you and treated in about a two week turnaround. The coating staff doing the work were military armorers for 24 years including 14 years with special forces at Hereford. I believe that they are the only certified operators in the UK that have been trained at the CerakoteŽ manufacturers in the USA.

    Let me know if you need any further information.

    Best regards,

    Mike.

    Stainless will/does rust unfortunately, it's less work to look after than Chromoly but stainless will rust.

    I've coated dozens upon dozens of stainless rifles, a fair few were rusted and pitted...my magic soon sorted all that!
