That's was my initial thought but its baked on super tough. It will take some cleaning gear better than what I have.

Assuming it is carbon any suggestions on what to use on it?

I'm facing that same dilemma on one of my rifles. I'm thinking about soaking the crown in some bore tech eliminator.

I've soaked brakes in vinegar but in not sure I'd do it with a rifles bore. I use patch out for the crown and sometimes accelerator

Thanks for the tips guys. I got a bottle of solvent from my LGS earlier today. Things are looking significantly better after one application. One or two more goes at it should do the trick.

As much as I love it I don't get nearly enough use out of it. I'm selling it and another pistol. I'll be re investing into a high end 9mm. Probably something in the STI DVC range

Asking for a friend ...

Can anyone recommend a Cerakote-r, that would be able to get Midnight Bronze.

He ordered a rifle and they organised to get a different company to coat it, but they applied a different colour because "Cerakote US won't supply Midnight Bronze".
Now it's a lighter/brighter colour - Burnt Bronze. Looks ok to me but it's not what he wanted.

I believe they've offered to either recoat the one he ordered, or supply a new standard/uncoated rifle but at the end of the day he wants the Midnight Bronze.

Thoughts?

*Company names left blank to avoid VV problems.

Midnight bronze is just burnt bronze with graphite black in it. Both are usually readily available from the distributor. Unsure of the exact ratio mix, but im sure a bit of googling, or even emailing cerakote directly, will turn up the result.

The importers will get midnight bronze of you're willing to wait a couple months (worst case). I know this, because I was going to buy some a couple months back.

Hi Brad,
I can order the H-294 Midnight Bronze in for you. It will be added to our next order to arrive in a few weeks, just let me know.
Yes I do have Burnt Bronze in stock.
They just don't stock it in their usual stock. Talk to SLR coatings as they're the cerakote distributor for Australia.

SLR can get literally any color from the Cerakote catalogue - normally 3 weeks max wait in my experience.

And yeah, add 10% black to Burnt Bronze and viola! Midnight Bronze.

Thanks! I think he's found a solution.

Now that he's also found a more local person to Cerakote it, I have to choose whether to get my new T3x in stainless or get it coated.

(Yes, just a cheap .223 to plink with, but they do the Lite in lefty and it feels comfy enough).

Why not just get the slightly cheaper plain one and get that cerakoted? Stainless easier to coat? Better quality?
