    Nickel Boron coating

    Does anyone know who has a good reputation out there for Nickel Boron coating? I am looking for someone good to send my AKS-74U out to to have it coated then duracoated in camo. Price and lead times are the most important though.

    Any info y'all have is greatly appreciated as always.

    If they are in GA or the south east that will be a plus too

    Someone posted some XCR parts on here a while back that they had coated in NiB, you might try doing some searches.

    Or, you can always try going the DIY route. You can get everything you need for $200 - $300 if I remember correctly. I think I'd try it on some less expensive items first.

    I'd be careful about the parts that you coated as the change in tolerance can apparently be somewhat unpredictable.



    That guy, he said I should be oblong and have my knees removed. But I don't trust him, he plays the banjo.

    I'm not sure you can paint metal once it's been coated in NB, unless you're talking about separate components getting coated/painted.

    Apparently you can get NiB cerakoted or duracoated. I'll have to double check though.

    That was me. I had some XCR, AR, & 7.62 AR parts coated by WMD guns, very happy.
    Current lead time says 4 weeks. Prices are very reasonable.
    Just sent off some more parts to them the other day too.
    WMD Guns in Florida, there on the web.

    My Rifle Dynamics AK is NiB coated and painted with Norrell's moly resin. John Norrell Arms - FAQ's

    You have to rough the surface a little I think, and like with any paint, surface prep is everything.
