what They’re Saying

Client Testimonials 

JD is so great!! I felt like I was giving my guns to my neighbor for improvements 🙂 Very talented artist, and very easy to work with. (From states away!) JD worked with me on my husband’s Christmas gift, (which he has not received yet) but my kids agree with me, it will most definitely leave him speechless, or maybe even bring him to tears. Beautiful craftsmanship.

Joni Embree-Meinders

JD of Koted Arms is a consummate professional. The overall customer experience and quality of work were exceptional. My project was completed in only 5 days. Their pricing was also lower than any of their “competitors” quotes. I will definitely be using their services in the future, and highly recommend Koted Arms to anyone looking for top notch Cerakot’ing!

All the employs are real gun people. You can start with their online gallery, then let your imagination go wild. I took a simple Ruger Charger and they made it something special. I dropped off my second gun today for a complete make over.

Can you Cerakote things other than metal?

While cerakote is amazing on metals it can also be applied to anything except for soft plastics and rubber. Harder plastics including polymer frames and wood are no problem for Cerakote.

Why use Cerakote?

Cerakote is the leading coating for firearms, automotive, and thin film industries. It excels above the rest in wear resistance, chemical resistance, corrosion resistance, high temperature resistance and self lubrication properties. New industries are discovering uses for it daily.  It can adhere to any metal or hard plastic substrate. 

Do you have a Dealer program?

Yes we do! We appreciate all dealer business and feel like you should be paid for your efforts.

Do you offer OEM/Bulk pricing?

Yes we do. OEM/Bulk order pricing and lead times are significantly different so please request a custom quote for more information.

How long does Cerakote last?

That’s a loaded question and it completely depends on how it’s used/stored. Cerakote is the toughest/longest lasting spray on coating out there but it’s not invicible. Things like holstering your gun in holster full of sand will be sure to scratch it or any coating. With that said like most things if you take care of it, it will last for years on end.
