    Hi Guys,
    Im a big fan of Para Ordinance firearms, and I like to carry my Warthog often as it is small but gives 10 + 1 of .45acp, good medicine! However, the finish on these guns sucks. The finish is chipping off, definitely NOT holster wear! I contacted Para about this and they say they will be happy to refinish my weapon at $250.00!!!
    So my question is this, who do you recommend for refinishing your firearm to provide you with a durable finish?
    Thank you in advance!
    Dr. G :D :D

    I don't have an answer to this question, but I'm going to bump it back to the top because I have my sights set on a Para Warthog. And considering that I'm a retardedly OCD person who spends way too much time polishing fingerprints off my 1911, a problem like you describe would drive me absolutely nuts.

    That is interesting because I recently contacted Para concerning the same issue and I was told that it could be done for $140 which includes return shipping. I thought this was too expensive and am interested in other options too.

    I own a 1911 LTC model.

    I just had my 1911 refinished with Cerakote by Tyler @ Ion Coatings, you could get a single color refinishing for a little over $100 assuming you didn't need any extra services, shipping & FFL fees might add to the cost a bit*. Do some googling on Cerakote, its one of the most durable spray/bake on coatings coatings out there right now.

    *If I'm not mistaken, an unlicensed individual can ship their firearm directly to a licensed manufacturer/gunsmith for service and that licensed manufacturer/gunsmith can ship the same gun directly back to the owner.

    Thanx Hydro!

    To anyone concerned, Southeast Gun Supply in Statesboro has a guy who does cerakote. You can drop your gun off with them and they will take care of it.
    I didn't have time to get pricing yet, but FYI these guys are decent, Ive bought several firearms off them and they are good folks.
