We Plead The 2nd, LLC is a Factory Certified Cerakote Applicator. You can rest assured that your project will be done with the highest level of technical standards and artistry. There is a good chance that other applicators that are not certified may not be applying it correctly, which in turn will wear faster, not bond, and/or not protect your firearm the way it is designed to. Choose wisely when selecting an applicator.
Because we are an FFL and Class 3 Dealer, you can ship your firearm or NFA item directly to us using UPS or FedEx ONLY. Do NOT ship your firearm USPS. There is no need to go through an FFL on your end, as cerakote and stippling fall under the "Gunsmithing" category, and no change of ownership occurs. Your firearm will be shipped directly back to you with the address you provide at checkout. All NFA items please include a copy of your ATF approved form.
Cerakote is a ceramic based finish that can be applied to metals, plastics, polymers and wood. The unique formulation used for Cerakote ceramic coating enhances a number of physical performance properties including abrasion/wear resistance, corrosion resistance, chemical resistance, impact strength, and hardness. Cerakote ceramic coatings utilize state-of-the-art technology to out-perform any competitive coating in both laboratory settings and real world applications, making it ideal for firearm finishes.
