BLOWNDEADLINE applies Cerakote H-Series firearm coatings. That is like saying Einstein did math. BlownDeadline (BDL) creates unique custom finishes and themed builds using patterns and stencils created in-house to make mind searing crisp designs without limits. If you have been thinking about cerakote, it is time to stop thinking and fill out an order form.

I have had a love hate relationship with gun painting. When I was a kid, I saw pictures of the Rhodesian Army pattern painted FN-FALs and I thought that was the coolest thing. When I tried pattern painting guns, the finish just wore off, creating a mess. After a lot of ugly guns, I discovered Cerakote. It is a baked ceramic finish that wears hard. Now I have a bunch of  Cerakoted guns and I can’t stop.

I got my first BDL gun when they did the Burnt Bronze Woodland Camouflage for Aero Precision. Every body has their Kryptonite, I have always liked the Woodland pattern, and the BDL work was awesome. It is tough and I can’t stop looking at it. Here is my gun:

What is Cerakote? “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. Each of these properties is rigorously tested to guarantee that Cerakote products remain at the forefront of the ceramic coatings market. Cerakote ceramic coatings utilize state-of-the-art technology to out-perform any competitive coating in both laboratory settings and real world applications.”

Cerakote is more durable than any other aftermarket sprayed on finish. There are many types of finishes, sprayed, chemical, plated to name a few. Nickel, Hard Chrome are some of the most durable finishes you can use but have their limits as far as color choice! The combination of Cerakote H Series and Cerakote’s new Armor Clear makes BDL finishes even more durable than non-cleared work.

It’s natural for items to wear due to heat and friction. Cerakote isn’t the cure-all, end-all solution but it will last if it is properly taken care of. Using a silicon cloth to wipe down the finish helps reduce friction and will prolong your Cerakote finish.For performance and durability test results please check out Cerakote’s website.


Everybody has their thing. My thing might look boring to you, I like camo patterns which, by design, look like nothing. You might like the red and green Boba Fett Mandalorian battlefield pick up look custom blaster. The designs from BDL span the known universe.. If you need an idea, check their Gallery. Their work includes solid colors, Battleworn, BDL Blades, Themed, Spartan Worn, Multi-Cam, Digital-Cam, Patriotic Paint Schemes. If you can design something else, they will add a new catagory. With over 100 different colors almost any color can be achieved. BLOWNDEADLINE can also mix custom colors upon request.
