Dropped this AR off with Sublime Modifications in Valdosta, Ga. They kept me updated as to when it was finished and all. Only took 3-4 days, (including a holiday!/and I dropped two firearms off) I have to admit I was a little nervous, because I’ve never had a firearm coated, painted, or dipped besides spray paint. When I seen it though I was stoked! Furthermore, since I’ve has this AR back it’s been fired a lot and shoots just as sweet as before. That being said it should be noted I work in Law Enforcement and this AR takes a beating from being used in the field, training, thrown around a vehicle, etc. The finish has held up great with no scratches or blemishes. Which I don’t mind because this AR is more less a tool for work. I’m literally surprised at how good the finish holds up. Really has held up better then the factory finish. However, that being said, if you're looking for a coating that will keep you firearm looking nice and pretty, Cerakote is the way to go. No worries of the finish being messed up. So A+ to the Cerakote product. Sublime Modifications done an awesome job. Done it fast and done it right. I highly recommend them. Their the only Cerakote applicator in South Georgia. Great prices too. I wasn’t sure how much Cerakote would cost and when I told some buddies about my quote and done a little research I discovered Sublime Modifications offered an excellent price. Also Sublime Modifications is owned and operated by an all American veteran! So another A+ to SUBLIME MODIFICATIONS Thank you to Cerakote for an awesome product and to Sublime Modifications for being an awesome applicator!
