A few weeks ago, I finally got set up to do my own blasting, so have been Cerakoting some of my guns, as I've wanted to do that to some of them for a while. Last week I finished my Bisley Blackhawk .45 and blued Mini-30 in Sniper Grey Cerakote. Besides the obvious protection the finish offers, I thought the Sniper Grey color would make the Mini-30 look like more of a Parkerized finish to go along with the Mini-- M14/M1A look.
The Bisley is my trail gun for the mountains, now it is well protected from the elements, but looks a bit plain being all dark grey matte, so I plan to re-blast the cylinder, trigger, hammer and ejector rod and re-finish them in Burnt Bronze, to give it some contrast.
On Friday, I finished my M700 .308, M870 tactical, and the slide of my Rock Island 1911 in .22 TCM in a Coyote Tan. Both Remington's had O.D. Green stocks, and the RIA came had come in an O.D. Green Duracoat, so I thought the Coyote Tan would give some contrast. All the parts on those three that are still black will be finished eventually in O.D. Green Cerakote as well.
I had to take all of the guns I've finished out to the range yesterday to re-zero them, as the sights were taken off for the spraying and oven cure. I had so many to pack into the truck, I did not take the M700 this outing, so no pics of it.
I want to do the black/stainless Mini-30 in a light grey/dark grey combo, I'll blast the Ruger synthetic stock and paint it light grey, and do all the stainless parts in dark grey.

Looks good! Cerakote intrigues me. Wondering how it would do on side arms that show holster ware on the blue. My wife and I carry Makarov's and mine is getting a lot of holster ware. I was thinking of getting it refinished.

Jeff, Cerakote holds up very well to holster wear. I have a 1911 that I did 10 years ago, and not showing any holster wear, but I don't carry it everyday, either.
The Ruger Bisley now that I have re-done some of the parts in Burnt Bronze:
