I finally get to post in this thread.
It started around 3:30AM. I couldn't sleep, so I started to field strip my bedside gun, a Sig P226.
When I had it apart, I came across a photo of one which had the frame painted FDE. My god, I thought, I should do that to mine! After a few attempts to find someone local to Duracoat it and a lower for my absolute favorite AR, I found Todd Powers of Phantom Finishing
. Todd Cerakoted both the frame and lower for a reasonable amount and with a quick turnaround.
I do not have the proper photography equipment to properly display how nice Todd's work came out. You have to see it in person, and I will be wearing it at the next Sacramento CalExpo Gun Show for all to see. If anyone wants to have a quality finish on their firearm Todd is the guy to do it.
Here is a closeup view of the painted sections.
