About Kentucky Gun Coatings

Meet Rick

When Rick left the Airforce after 12 years of service, he settled in Michigan where he continued his profession as a Medical Lab Technician.  Soon, though, Rick became a co-owner and president of a glass company.  It was there that he met a third-generation gunsmith who proved to be Rick's inspiration.  From there Rick sold his share of the glass company and moved "back home" to the family-owned farm in Grayson County Kentucky in 2007.  He then studied and became a certified gunsmith.  His mentor advised Rick to find a niche market.  That spurred Rick to discover the up-and-coming company for ceramic coatings finish.  That company is CERAKOTE.  Rick attended their factory-owned school and became a certified Cerakote Applicator. He also obtained the coveted Federal Firearms License. Rick opened his shop in a small shed on the family farm in 2009.  He was a pioneer in the industry of ceramic coatings. Now 12 years later, he is still going strong and is known across the country as a fine craftsman an honest businessman and a super nice guy!

What you get for the Money and Our Garantee

Each Firearm is completely disassembled, degreased, aluminum oxide blasted, coated, and reassembled. We use only the highest grade materials available today. Upon completion of your order each firearm is tested for function and performance. Further, a Quality Control inspection is performed on each piece. We guarantee any finish applied by us to be free from defects. If the coating should flake, peel, or crack we will refinish it for free within the first year. After one year we will refinish your firearm for half price . Should any firearm coating ever develop rust or corrosion we will re-strip and refinish your firearm at No Charge!!
