Yes muzzle devices - I Cerakoted the stainless comp black on my AR pistol and since it has a 7.5" barrel it's a flame thrower. You can actually feel the heat of the fireball on your assist hand. If I clean all the burn marks off the compensator you can see some gray peeking out (the gray is the color of the al-ox blasted stainless). My solution has been to leave the burn marks in place and let them blend everything black.

Cerakote is an awesome product but has it's limitations too. When you screw up something that's cured the solution is to put it back in the blast cabinet and blast it off and start over. It yields pretty easy to blasting with al-ox so other forms of abrasion will take their toll too.

It's all in the attitude - ya gotta learn to embrace the ring! Love the ring! Be the ring! I hear ya but I decided to accept the presence of a turn ring as a normal revolver thing. The 30 Carbine birdshead project will get Cerakoted if I'm kinda "meh" about the outcome of the project. If I decide I really like the result I'll have it reblued. Or hard chromed - that's an interesting idea that's been floated by and worth checking out.

Oh yes, I put a flash can on my 11.5 pistol to stop feeling the hot hand. The desert eagle will also give you a warm feeling. Hmm, can you imagine what the 30 bisley is gonna do? Maybe need to go blue after all.

Very nice looking revolver. The stainless solution looks great. I ogled and envied your AR9, now I just accept you're the Rembrandt of the Ruger forum. Well done sir.

Just a reminder . . . on Old Model single-actions the "ring" can be avoided with proper handling.

But we all knew that . . . right?

Good-lookin' piece. Thanks for sharing.

Waveform, which Cerakote version did you use? Room temp or oven?

I used the H series oven cure cause that's what I had on hand. Cerakote has a high temp firearm product that is air dry and I've wondered if that would hold up better. They say it's for muzzle brakes, suppressor and such. The trade off is abrasion versus high heat. The oven cure is supposed to be better for abrasion so is the blast effect a heat issue or an abrasion issue or both? The stuff isn't cheap so I've never felt inclined to buy the high temp product just to compare. A pro applicator would probably know.

I have a 454 Redhawk I Ceracoated and it is holding up pretty good. I left the cylinder in it's stainless finish so the contrast is nice. I recommend Ceracoat. It's tough and does what they say it will.
