As promised here are some pics. Thanks again for all the hard work Paul. Hands down one of the best experiences to date. Quality work and an attention to detail that is unmatched. The color is Tarjac Green by Cerakote.

Current Turnaround time is only 1-2 weeks for single color projects and less than a week for small items such as a stripped lower or upper.

Turnaround time for camo jobs is 2-3 weeks.

Man, if only Micro Slick Cerakoting were available in FDE.
It would be nice if they made it in a few additional colors. I think their logic is that the parts being Micro Slicked are all internal moving parts and therefore unseen. But I realize that BCGs and other rifle bolts are internal yet partially visible.

OC Custom Coating
07-22-2013, 8:51 AM
Do u have a warrantee?

Yes, our shop guarantees that the coating won't peel, flake, crack, or have any problems that result from the coating process. If a problem arises that is a result of the coating process (or prep process), then we will re-coat that part at no additional cost.

This does not include scratches, holster wear, and other blemishes that result from use and abuse over time.

Thank you! I look forward to speaking with you.


Do you guys coat optics and lens covers also ?

Yes, we coat optics. Lens covers will depend on the material. Cerakote can be applied to hard plastic covers, but it does not adhere well to rubber. We do have a couple examples in our gallery (http://occustomcoating.com/gallery) of rifles and lens covers that were coated recently. Toward the bottom of the gallery there are 2 Remington 700's with scopes and matching lens covers in a custom camo pattern.

Paul at OC Custom Coatings is such a nice guy with great customer service, not to mention his work is second to none. Paul has done two complete AR's for me thus far, and I dropped another off today. Here is a pic of my latest build.....6.5 Creedmoor in Titanium Blue.

Always exceeding expectation on quality of work and delivery date. Give him a call, you wont be sorry. Very fair prices for the quality and level of customer service.

I look forward to the finished results!

DO our pistols need to be stripped or prepped in any way (besides disassembled) for you to coat them?

OC Custom Coating

DO our pistols need to be stripped or prepped in any way (besides disassembled) for you to coat them?

Our shop offers full disassembly and reassembly services for a small fee. You are more than welcome to handle the disassembly and reassembly and save yourself the extra cost.

There is no other prep needed prior to drop off. Here is a basic summary of what we do after receiving the firearm/parts:
if our shop is handling the disassembly then we start with the full disassembly of the firearm/parts. Our shop will then do an initial degrease on all parts. Then we media blast each part with the recommended grit aluminum oxide. From this point forth all parts are handled with gloves to help maintain a sterile surface. parts are then blown off and put through a clean/sterile degrease tank. Then coated and placed in the oven to cure.

This is a basic summary. Some firearms require more steps. Delicate parts, such as optics and flashlights, require different prep and cure process.

OC Custom Coating Review - Part 1

First off, Paul's communication is EXCELLENT. He does not leave you hanging and responds to texts and emails immediately.

I, literally, had a zillion questions and Paul was patient in his explanations and demeanor towards someone he has never met in person. I can't say the same for other vendors on this forum who make you feel like you are wasting their time.

I have 4 lowers at Paul's shop awaiting some custom engraving and Cerakoting. I am waiting for the artwork proofs to authorize the work to move forward.

Paul worked with my schedule in order to coordinate my trips to the OC. The lowers were completed at Arms Specialty and Tool (Gabe's shop) and then dropped off to Paul @ OC Custom Coating. Talk about one-stop shop. The 2 shops are minutes apart.

I've seen Paul's work on Rick's (South Coast Outdoorsman) Mossberg Shotty. That thing is gorgeous in the Magpul Green with the black furniture. The Cerakote looks to be one tough SOB. My lowers are not done yet, but if they are anything like Rick's Mossy, I will be more than happy with the final turnout. I chose some crazy colors, but I will leave that top secret until part 2 of the OC Custom Coating Review. When these 4 get done, I have 2 AR10 lowers in transit to me. I will complete the other 20% at Arms Specialty and Tool and then get them over to Paul. This is going to get me divorced. I have the following on the immediate wishlist to get coated:
1. Remmy 870 Express
2. Saiga 12
3. Saiga 308
4. Zastava N-PAP AK

Until then...Do not hesitate to email, call, text, send smoke signals, Morse Code, whatever...Just call and get your stuff done with these guys.

For all you haters, I am not a family member, employee, personal buddy, lawyer or business partner of Paul's. Just an honest CG'er who feels like any CG Brother wanting to know the real deal when it comes to coating will get my honest opinion and review.

Part 2 to come with pics!

Just spoke to Paul in detail and now we have some CRAZY AZZ project in the works.

I have a Remmy 887 Nitro Mag shotty. This thing is all black, all plastic cladded and has never seen a round through it. It is @ 3 years old and is a safe queen for sure. My field guns are my Remmy 870 Express shotties and my skeet/trap gun is my Beretta Silver Pigeon. That is why this gun gets no love.

Anyway, Paul came up with a collage of my custom logo similar to his skull collages. Paul is also going to create a one-off color scheme for the collage. The entire rifle will be coated and covered, including the barrel.

He is working on 6 custom engraved lowers for me right now. When that project is done, we hope to have the custom shotgun completed shortly thereafter.

If patience is a virtue, I have no virtue!

BTW, the finish is pretty damn durable... I was relatively cautious when putting it together - taped critical areas (bolt catch roll pin area and receiver under the dust cover)... and was reluctant at first, but no scratches or chips - other than a trifling little mark when I got overzealous getting the bolt catch roll pin flush (it's hardly noticeable unless you look real close in the specific area...

Yeah, Paul thinks this the gun that will show the artwork the best. We had many choices, but the 887 Nitro Mag does have a lot of real estate to coat.

Who knows, yours might be in Paul's shop some time soon. :cool2:

That color combination is sick (sick as in GOOD). I have a lower being coated in MagPul Foliage Green right now at Paul's. I was thinking of the Magpul Foliage Green and the Armor Black (flat black) as a color combo.

In fact, I have 6 lowers at Paul's right now. He just sent me the final proof of the custom engraving and I gave him the green light to finish one lower complete. If that one turns out RIGHT, then he will move forward and custom engrave the rest of the lowers.

Here are the Cerakote colors I picked out with Paul's assistance. The first 4 are AR15 lowers:
1. Magpul Foliage Green
2. Satin Aluminum
3. Burnt Bronze
4. Armor Black

The 5th and 6th lowers are AR10 lowers:
5. Satin Mag (It is an actual custom mix by Paul. This will be a one-off custom color created by Paul) :jump:
6. Blue Titanium

Paul and I have a TOP SECRET Remington 887 Nitro Express 12g project brewing right now. It too, will be a one-off, custom whole gun design and Cerakote color combination. It's not really top secret, but I thought I'd dramatize it a bit. :facepalm:
Paul is creating the design and once he is done with that, the shotty will be dropped off to him for the work to be done.

I know, I know...
:useless:

Just be patient, the pics will come soon enough.

Later,

wow im impressed, just watched the videos and it seems that cerakoting is more than just for looks. its even better for the bolt carrier group than nickle boron. So whats the difference between cerakote and microslick? Do you guys typically cerakote the lower, upper, barrel and then microslick the bcg? Are there any other parts that will need to get microslick besides the bcg?

I slicked the entire BCG (not the Pin)

jpkar
09-24-2013, 5:41 PM
Will definitely microslick the bcg, why not the pin? Is it possible to cerakote the outside of the barrel for corrsion resistance while microslicking the inside of the barrel for lubrication? Same question for upper receiver, cerakote outside but microslick the inside!!!

Just wanted to post my experience with OC Custom. First, let me say that Paul is wonderful to work with. Sincere, experienced, and open to any and all questions. He is very good at communicating as well. I left my rifle with him for an extended period of time due to some traveling, and he had no problem holding on to it until I get back. The quality of work is excellent. But what really sets him apart his customer service. Not once in the process did I feel like I had unanswered questions, or hesitant about going forward wit the project. He is truly an asset to Calguns, but ESPECIALLY for Orange County people. I'm really glad I was able to find someone that provides this service locally. In my opinion its much easier and more personal if you are able to drive over to the shop and talk to the guy that will be touching your weapon. In short, give him a call/email, you will not regret it!

I had him cerakote my AR, and am very happy with the results. Its just a "simple" Tungsten Grey, and I had him do the barrel Black. Also had him do two magazines to match.

I brought him my entire (assembled) rifle, minus the optic. He did the complete tear down, prep, cerakoting, and re-assembly for me, all for a VERY reasonable price. I'm going to the range on Monday to see if it still goes bang, but I'm very confident that all went well during re-assembly :)

Anyway, here are the pictures that you all came for:

OC Custom Coating Review - Part 1

First off, Paul's communication is EXCELLENT. He does not leave you hanging and responds to texts and emails immediately.

I, literally, had a zillion questions and Paul was patient in his explanations and demeanor towards someone he has never met in person. I can't say the same for other vendors on this forum who make you feel like you are wasting their time.

I have 4 lowers at Paul's shop awaiting some custom engraving and Cerakoting. I am waiting for the artwork proofs to authorize the work to move forward.

Paul worked with my schedule in order to coordinate my trips to the OC. The lowers were completed at Arms Specialty and Tool (Gabe's shop) and then dropped off to Paul @ OC Custom Coating. Talk about one-stop shop. The 2 shops are minutes apart.

I've seen Paul's work on Rick's (South Coast Outdoorsman) Mossberg Shotty. That thing is gorgeous in the Magpul Green with the black furniture. The Cerakote looks to be one tough SOB. My lowers are not done yet, but if they are anything like Rick's Mossy, I will be more than happy with the final turnout. I chose some crazy colors, but I will leave that top secret until part 2 of the OC Custom Coating Review. When these 4 get done, I have 2 AR10 lowers in transit to me. I will complete the other 20% at Arms Specialty and Tool and then get them over to Paul. This is going to get me divorced. I have the following on the immediate wishlist to get coated:
1. Remmy 870 Express
2. Saiga 12
3. Saiga 308
4. Zastava N-PAP AK

Until then...Do not hesitate to email, call, text, send smoke signals, Morse Code, whatever...Just call and get your stuff done with these guys.

For all you haters, I am not a family member, employee, personal buddy, lawyer or business partner of Paul's. Just an honest CG'er who feels like any CG Brother wanting to know the real deal when it comes to coating will get my honest opinion and review.

Part 2 to come with pics!

-Ron

Here is a teaser pic before I start my full detailed review or Part 2! I am scheduled to get the lowers back this week and drop off my 887 Express and a S&W 686 revolver.

The lowers are naked but will be completed this week. Paul's engraving work is on full display. I will show the other side in the review:

Part 1 of the OC Custom Coatings review is on post #73 of this thread.

Here is Part 2 of the review:

Paul's communication has not changed. Dude gets back to you on any question. I like to use email as my main form of communication and Paul obliged. He emails me daily with status updates, pics and vids. You can't beat that.

Paul is an artist. He helped me with my ideas to make it work on a lower. Paul understands the artistic side of his business. He know what color combinations work and will create "one-off" color combinations as seen in my lowers.

Here are the pics to show his attention to detail and incorporating real-world art in to one crazy man's ideas and making these lowers just plain gorgeous.

Hi Friends, our shop in the process of moving to a larger location. As soon as we know the lease is finalized we will release the new address and opening date along with other info. We will still be in north Orange County and we expect to open by Monday December 2nd if not sooner.

We originally hoped to move without any downtime, but we will have to take a few weeks off in order to finalize the paperwork and licensing along with building a spray booth and getting everything wired and setup at the new location.

We really appreciate your patience during this time of transition. We believe we will be able to better serve our customers after this move and we look forward to working with all of you in the very near future.

In the meantime we have a couple options to help with your coating needs. We have started a sign up list so that you can save a spot in line once we reopen our doors. Please feel free to email, PM, or call and let us know if you want to be on the list and what items you want coated.

The other option, if you want your items coated sooner, is to contact our Washington location. We have a fully licensed shop in Washington State under the name MAD Custom Coating. MAD Custom Coating also produces high quality Cerakote finishes among other services. I can say with confidence that both OC Custom Coating and MAD Custom Coating produce the highest quality finishes in the industry. I have not found another shop that can compare with the quality of work that our companies produce. You can view some of the work produced by MAD Custom Coating on their website at: http://www.madcustomcoating.com

Hi Calgunners,

Here is an update regarding our move into our new facility...

We recently ironed out all the details and came to a verbal agreement on the lease terms with our new landlord. The landlord is drawing up the lease agreement and we hope to have it signed by the end of this week. We will still be in North Orange County area and just a short distance from our current shop.

We had originally planned to move without any time gaps in our production. However, due to city licensing and construction at the new facility, we will have to close for a short period of time before reopening in our new location. We expect to be up and running again by Monday December 2nd.

We are having a spray booth and media blasting booth built along with vents that need to be installed to exhaust these rooms out of the building. We recently met with our contractor in order to write up the plans and move forward with the construction.

The ATF has already approved our new location and the FFL is already in place. We are currently working on the city license and requirements.

We are on track to complete all of these items during the month of November and our tentative date to reopen is Monday December 2nd.

In the meantime we have started a "waiting list" for clients who know they want to have items coated by OC Custom Coating and are willing to wait till we reopen at our new location. By placing your name on the waiting list you are able to reserve your place in line when we reopen. If you want to be included on this waiting list, please PM us or send an email to info@occustomcoating.com and let us know what items you want coated. We will provide you with a quote for the work and secure your position in line.

Thank you for your interest in OC Custom Coating!

Cerakote makes a color called Socom Blue which is the closest to blueing in color. I can increase the gloss level on it in order to maximize the sheen if you want.

I'm hoping to write an update and release our new address tomorrow. I apologize for the delay and I appreciate everyone's patience. We've been working 12+ hours each day in order to meet all our deadlines. I will get some additional details out soon.

Hi Calgunners,

I am proud to announce that OC Custom Coating will be teaming up with Ed's Tactical Armory. We will be located at: 711 W Orangethorpe Ave., Placentia, CA 92870
Our hours of operation will be the same as Ed's Tactical which is Tues-Fri from 10am-7pm and Saturday from 10am-6pm (Closed on Sun & Mon).

Ed's Tactical is both a gun store and firearms manufacturer. They manufacture high quality AR lower receivers (both serialized lowers and 80% lowers).

OC Custom is located inside of Ed's Tactical. you can find us by coming into the storefront and asking for OC Custom Coating.

I believe that our companies will compliment each other and our customers will have one place that will accommodate many of their firearm needs.

Our coating shop is still under construction and we expect to reopen on Tuesday December 3rd. We currently have the majority of the construction and electrical complete. This coming week we have many smaller tasks to complete including building multiple workbenches, running compressed air through the shop, installing equipment & safes, and general shop organization.

I want to thank all of you for your patience during this time of transition. We are a small family owned company that is dedicated to producing the highest quality coatings in the industry.

We have started a waiting list for those who want to reserve their place in line after we reopen. Our waiting list is currently booked up through the end of December. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to save a place in line.

If you are looking to give the gift of coating as a holiday present then please feel free to contact me regarding our Gift Cards, which are available in any dollar amount and never expire.

Have a great Thanksgiving!

WooHoo! OCC is back in biz :D

I'm takin' another gun in today... this time a pistol...

Here's a testament to Orange County Custom Coatings' OUTSTANDING Customer Service... I had a Benelli MR1 in right before they moved shop... Paul gave me the option to wait till the move or send to their sister company in WA (MAD Custom Coatings) at no additional cost :eek:... I opted to send to WA...

The quality is awesome! (the black chevrons and upper portion on butt-stock were taped off - I'm amazed how well it turned out)... there were a couple minor snafus, but Paul (with his typical exceptional customer service) has agreed to take care of 'em...

Here are a couple pics of the MR1 (as usual, my crappy photog skills do the cerakote job no justice)

That MR1 turned out BADAZZ. Both his SoCal and his Washington shops are top notch. I have 2 full AR builds with Paul right now. I can't wait to see what the finished products will look like.

Paul will coat almost anything that can be coated. I will be sending him car parts, ATV parts, golf clubs (shafts), sunglasses and of course my firearms to receive that OCC treatment. I have to bide my time. I don't want to pay for a divorce and custom coating at the same time! :facepalm:

Thanks! This is a small little side gig I have. I usually do family and a little glam but I dig getting shots of the 2A toys. Photography is an expensive hobby, but not nearly as bad as shooting. If you can scrape $1k for a entry SLR and a decent lens, you're in business.

Sweet 9mm AR.

I have that caliber slated for one my 80%'s coated by OCC.

Can't wait!

I definitely recommend going the 9mm route. You can take it to any range and the ammos a little cheaper. Post up pics when it's done!

Is that magpul trigger guard also cerekoted or is it just the one that already comes in fde? can the enhanced aluminum one be coated?

I ended up going with a cheap plastic one in FDE because well, I got a good deal on it. I'm willing to bet the aluminum one can be coated.

It matches perfectly. I'm planning on going burnt bronze with mine and my black polymer one isn't going to match well...so it's good to hear that the aluminum one can probably be coated.

Hey Friends, thank you for all the posts and comments.

Due to high demand we are setting up an engraving day at OC Custom Coating. Our engraver, Charlie, will spend a full day at our shop and he will be doing engravings on site. We are hoping to make this a monthly event if there are enough requests. If you have a firearm or anything that you want to engrave, please contact our OC Custom Coating and give us the specifics of your engraving job and we can get you a quote. There is limited space available so reserve your spot soon.

Charlie does amazing work with a high powered laser engraver. His standard engraving is done at about 2x the depth of the average engraving. Below are just a few pics of his work. Charlie is able to bring a 3 dimensional look to engraved images. This is something most engraving shops are unable to do. Here's the info for the engraving day:

When: Tuesday, January 28th 9am-7pm (we prefer the parts to be dropped off prior to this date if possible)
Where: OC Custom Coating located at 711 W Orangethorpe Ave., Placentia, CA 92870 (located inside Ed's Tactical Armory)


Cut clear through the magwell for a unique custom look:

There's no color fill on this one. The different shades were all done with the laser:

The logo on the left is what was given to Charlie and the engraving on the right is what he produced:

There's no color fill on this one either. Charlie is truly an artist with his engraving techniques:

If you can do Kryptek Highlander. You have my business.

We are in the process of having custom stencils made in order to apply the kryptek pattern. We will want to test out the pattern prior to offering it and to determine what to charge.

This pattern is almost always applied through hydrodipping (a pre-printed film wrapped around the firearm), which looks cool but is an extremely delicate coating that is useless aside from cosmetics. We are developing a way to apply this pattern with Cerakote making it a much better choice with more color options. This pattern will require a combination of custom stencil work and freehand airbrushing.

I will be sure to post on this thread once we offer this pattern.

Thanks for all the pics and feedback that everyone posted. Much appreciated.

Our current turnaround time for complete firearms is approximately 5 weeks out. However, if you have an item or two (e.g., stripped lower or handguard) that are already disassembled then we are typically able to turn them around within 1-2 weeks.

I don't know of anyone else in Southern California who can engrave with the quality, depth, and detail that our engraver achieves.

If anyone is interested in engraving parts by this weekend please email me with the exact text and/or image that you want engraved and I can get you a quote. Please send the information to info@occustomcoating.com

I'm no expert, and never really dealt with engraving before - but in comparison to what I've seen in photos from other engravers, OCCC's engraver is much more detailed - truly art!

Hi Friends, below are a few pics. The Kryptek is just a small sample. We'll have some additional Kryptek patterns on full ARs posted in the near future.

The M1As are highly custom rifles that we recently coated and fully assembled. As an M1A enthusiast I have to say that I am very impressed with the quality from both LRB Arms (manufacturer of the FDE M1A) and of the JAE (J-Allen) stocks on the rifles. They are pricy items but you truly get what you pay for with.

Paul will have it completed today for pickup! He shot me pics to wet my whistle. He will be finishing up an AR10 rifle for me in the next few weeks.

Fresh off the OC Custom Coating workbench. The Cerakote is still wet. ;)
This gun is still not complete. Charging handle, sights and bullet button are still missing. Paul will be installing a BCM Gunfighter charging handle, Raddlock BB and Magpul flip up sights. Paul will have it completed today for pickup! He shot me pics to wet my whistle. He will be finishing up an AR10 rifle for me in the next few weeks.

I know many people have been wanting to see us do Kryptek before moving forward with their projects. Here's the latest Kryptek design. Notice that we included a custom logo hidden within some of the hexagon shapes.

Paul will disassemble / reassemble for a reasonable fee... Or you can bring in disassembled.

Or maybe I misunderstood your question... If you are asking who in the thread have disassembled prior to taking in, I've done both ways... Partial and complete disassembly, and have taken complete firearms

Do you work for OC Customs?

Seems you're a customer but you chime in every chance you get. I understand that you're happy with their work and perhaps have answers to others questions, but since this is OC Customs thread in the vendor section, lets have them be responsible for all info posted regarding their business. You've obviously been through the process but some of the questions members want answers for, could go beyond what information you may know. We all want to be helpful when we can but lets let OCC thoroughly answer questions regarding their business.

no, I don't work for OCC - just giving info to fellow enthusiasts (the way the forum works in general)... the responses I've given in the thread are not top secret stuff that only an OCC employee would be able to answer.

Paul doesn't spend a lot of time on the forum - but fellow members may want to get a project done - so I don't see why offering information that may help them would be a problem for you.

BTW, the info regarding dis-assembly is on OCC's website: http://occustomcoating.com/price-list - would you be more content with a stale response simply posting their link? After-all, I want to be sure I'm posting to your standards ;)

Hi Pre-emptive strike, this is Paul, the owner of OC Custom Coating. LBDammed is one of our clients who has been using our company for a long time. I think we have coated most, if not all, of his firearms at this point. He has a lot of experience in dealing with our company and our coatings (both at our CA shop and our WA shop) and we do appreciate his reviews and help toward other members. However, I can also understand your desire to hear some answers directly from our company.

If you or any other member have a question that you would like answered by my company I want to encourage you to contact me directly. Here are some ways you can reach me:

Bus ph: 714-202-7552 (we can receive text messages through this line so feel free to text us)
Email: info@occustomcoating.com or paul@occustomcoating.com
Send us a PM here on Calguns (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/private.php?do=newpm&u=74935)
Website: www.occustomcoating.com (http://occustomcoating.com)
Address: 711 W. Orangethorpe Ave., Placentia, CA 92870 (Located inside Edís Tactical Armory)
We are open: Tues-Fri 10am-7pm and Saturday 10am-6pm (Closed Sundays & Mondays)
Come on in to our storefront during business hours and our friendly staff can help you (no appointment needed unless you want to meet with me personally)


The above methods of contact are our preferred means of receiving questions. I have asked, in my initial listing and in this thread along the way, that members would kindly refrain from asking us questions through this forum. We are a small shop focused on quality coatings and it is tough for us to keep up with all of the social media sites and forums along with the standard phone calls, emails, PMs, and walk in clients. We are simply trying to narrow the avenues of correspondence to better serve our customers.

I enjoy having this thread as a place for our clients to post their pictures of our work and to help other interested members with questions. Hopefully we can help you out in the future with some coatings or engravings.

Thank you for your interest and don't hesitate to contact me directly with any questions or comments.

Well said LBDamned. Paul has said himself that he wishes that he had more time for the forum. Paul is an awesome hardworking guy that does outstanding work with an incredible turnaround time. I'm sure Paul would be more than happy that the word is getting around about the quality and professionalism he works toward. All the guys at ED's tactical are great. I've had a few rifles worked on by Paul and I could not be happier. Keep spreading the word about a great resource to our community. :batman:

Stale response, what are you even talking about, you're response is certainly more stale than posting a link, again its not your business in the first place. So yes, the link would've been the most appropriate way for YOU to answer a question to someone else's business. Simply saying "Paul" doesn't say much, who the hell is Paul. Thats why I would've wanted an answer from OCC, if Paul comes on here and simply says "I do the disassembly/reassembly" without any assurance that he has a solid background in firearms, as well as his employees, then we'll have a better understanding who we're handing our toys over to. Those of us who have custom firearms built by reputable builder's may have to decide on whether this will suffice or go through the painstaking ordeal of shipping (risk lost, theft, damage) the firearm back to its original builder and waiting in line for another 6 months or more. I of course would much rather hand my toys to a local business doing the work and have them hand it right back to me to avoid the shipping, even if it took several months.

As I mentioned previously, of course we all want to be helpful, but posting a question to a businesses thread means its meant for a rep from that business, not an enthusiastic customer who monitors the thread and feels they have to respond every time somebody posts something. Their are times that several others may be interested in the answer too. If OCC is advertising on here then they should be able to answer questions for potential customers on here, just makes for good business practice.

That all being said, if you want to tell us about Paul's background/experience/credentials I'd be more than happy to hear it.

Paul thank you for the response, I've tagged this thread awhile back because I was happy to see someone close that cerakoted within driving distance. I always check out members photos who post your work to see the quality, and sometimes for ideas. I thought sparrky had a good question, more or less assuming he saw the most recent photo posted and possibly had a custom 1911/2011 and was curious about who'd be handling it, so I was very curious as to what the answer would be.

Anyhow, I too have custom items too and will be in touch, possibly stop in the next time I'm in O.C.

Thanks again

OC Custom Coating! One word.... Awesome!! Thanks Paul and OCCC team. The pics below are my two Sig Sauer pistols that were great before, but now are just, wow! If I didn't know these two guns I would say they are not the same. Literally like brand new, but better. Get off the fence and give your gun a face lift. But if it were only cosmetics, that would be enough. But no, these are literally better guns. OCCC does what they call a micro slick finish on moving parts like slide rails, barrel, or any other part that does the hard task of rubbing against each other. This layer is a finish color black that treats steel parts much better than bluing. Once the parts start rubbing together the micro slick works better and better. Some people don't even lube these parts anymore. The guns sound quieter when racking a round in the chamber. Though the inside of the barrel and chamber do not get any coating, the outside does and the slide seems to run smoother and quieter.
Micro slick isn't a must, but hey! If you're gonna treat your gun to a facelift, the added micro slick is very inexpensive. Enough talk. See for yourselves!

The micro slicking has been nice. My guns feel very smooth like gliding on a film of oil. Doesn't feel metal to metal. Any handgun with surface to surface wear I highly recommend it.

Here's a revolver we just finished blueing. Keep in mind that this revolver is over 30 years old and came in with surface rust and light pitting.

This is our deep polished blue. We can also do a matte blued finish as well. I'll try to get more pics out as soon as we can.

Here's a revolver we just finished blueing. Keep in mind that this revolver is over 30 years old and came in with surface rust and light pitting.

This is our deep polished blue. We can also do a matte blued finish as well. I'll try to get more pics out as soon as we can.

This is very nice! Well done!

I purchased this KSG and let OCCC put their magic to it. Burnt bronze is a very tasty contrast. Here are some before and after pics.

Just dropped off a muzzle brake for my AR to have it engraved and coated. Looking forward to seeing the finished product.
The Ed's tactical store looks good and has some good prices. Looks like I will be spending some money there.
