Anodize or Cerakote aluminum pistol frame?


I am thinking of doing a 80%. p229 or aluminum frame 1911. I am probably only going to make 1 or 2. What do you think would be the most cost effective?


Cerakote. It adds luberisity to the parts and is tougher than anodize. Better yet, do a type 2 hard coat, no color… then Cerakote.


Did you mean: lubricity ?


Cerakote, done correctly.


Yes, I am not the worlds greatest speller. I rely upon auto correct a lot.


Cerakote, done correctly, is superior to almost everything available.


Cerakote for sure
The cost of the tooling to complete 80% frames is pretty pricey to only build one or 2
