So the cerakote guy has had a couple of hang ups, but they should be done middle of next week.
It has been a long series of unfortunate (for me) events, making this way longer than it should be.
However I understand that real life isn't always what you want.
These guys are making a good product, and will have all this straightened out for the next guy LOL
I don't mind the extra wait time, to keep my money local, and be able to deal face to face with the manufacturer.
It will all be good at the end
