Coating Services

Our service includes coatings that can be applied to guns, weapons, components, tactical accessories, knives, cutting tools, and archery equipment. ACT offers the ideal coating technologies to allow for the best surface coverage. The coating is consistently and uniformly applied to enhance surface durability and resistance. Additionally, our coatings reinforce and improve the surface of the components to provide you with a consistent and quality finish. 

ACT is the only coating facility on the West Coast that has a Federal Firearms License. We are certified to handle all firearm components for coating. We can process guns and firearm components as well as assembled firearms into our coating facility. The firearms field has seen an introduction of revolutionary advanced coatings that deliver an exceptional product. Our team of experts can offer you a full spectrum of premium coatings and we can provide a finished project on time and at a great value.  

This large in-house production site has numerous state-of-the-art Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) machines that can create over 20+ custom coatings. Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) or DLC coatings are applied to improve resistance to everyday wear and tear. The coating properties improve the overall hardness of the material and its ability to withstand higher temperatures. Additionally, our coatings provide resistance to corrosion along with improving the lifespan of your weapon.  

You can choose from a variety of coatings and finished polishes. A selection of reflective or non-reflective surfaces is also offered.
