    Painting over Cerakote?

    I have a Remington 700 5R 223 Rem. that has a stainless barrel and I think action (not 100% sure on the action). It came with a black Cerakote finish in a black w/gray spiderweb Bell and Carlson M40 stock.

    I love the rifle, not too crazy about the black barrel, action and stock. I'm going to paint it some type of flat dark earth, coyote or tan. I might add some OD green, brown and/or black later.

    I've used Brownell's Aluma-Hyde II paint with good luck. How does the Aluma-Hyde II compare to Duracoat's aerosol paint? Is there anything special I'll have to do to paint over the Cerakote or B&C stock?

    Thanks, NYH1.

    Most paints don’t stick to cerakote that well, so expect it to flake off.
    I paint spaceship parts.

    You’ll need to bead blast the metal for anything to stick. I’ve used Duracoat but I dislike how long it takes to fully cure and having to mix the hardener is unecessary IMO since there is MolyResin available. I’ve used a lot of MolyResin on firearms parts and knife blades. It’s very easy to use and apply and hold up as well as anything I’ve have had cerakoted.

    The nice thing is that if you rattle can on top of the cerakote, the paint comes off easier.

    That's one way of looking at it!
