    I picked up a TNW ASR a month ago or so. Great gun, but I have decided that I dislike parkerized finishes. After the last time I took it out shooting I noticed that my wedding ring has scratched the finish pretty bad. So, I am thinking Cerakote. I live in the Beaverton area. Can anyone recommend a good shop for Cerakote?

    The receiver and the barrel shroud on the TNW ASR isn't parkerized since it's made out of aluminum. It is hard anodized and any soft metal will leave marks on it.
    I do know of a touch up chemical that will hide those marks and it's similar to perma blue..but I know a good cerakote guy.

    Jon at NW Custom Firearms has done allot of cerakoting for me !
