Sending a cerakoted pistol off for black nitride treatment


Recommended Posts

Hello all.


I won a cert at a match for a nitride treatment.  The 2011 that I have currently has a cerakote finish.  Should I be concerned about the surface of the frame and slide? 


I assume they will blast with aluminum oxide to strip the cerakote, and then bead blast to smooth the surface prior to nitriding.


Is this an accurate assumption?  I spoke to one of their representatives on the phone, and he gave me the impression that it was no big deal.  Anyone have any experience with similar circumstances with H&M and an already finished pistol being sent in to refinish?

H&M do great work.  Been using them for quite a while and never had a problem.  Extremely fast turn-around too.  But I thought you had to prep before sending.  At least that's what I've always done.  Might want to check on that to be sure.
