- Q: How is payment done?
A: Payment can be done a few ways, with Personal Check, Money Order for the amount & return shipping or can be done by Credit Card (Visa, Master Charge, or Discover) we always like to settle up payment on charge cards the night before we ship back. This way when we call for payment we will give you the tracking number, time & date of your package arrival, then the credit card info can be exchanged.
- Q: Is this the same process used by the firearm companies?
A: Yes, we use the exact process. (Water transfer printing, Hydro Graphic Printing, Immersion Printing, Cubic Printing, Hydro Imaging and After-Market Dipping)
- Q: Can you do wood stocks?
A: Yes, this process can be used on any item that is 3D in a solid form.
- Q: Can you do stainless steel barrels and receivers?
A: Yes we can, we use a special primer for that application.
- Q: Is the finished product durable?
A: Yes. All materials that we use: catalyzed 2 stage high performance coatings.
- Q: On scopes, what do you mean by “Owners Risk” and what is the success rate of a scope making it thru the process?
A: Owners risk means we are not responsible for replacing your scope if the scope fogs up, meaning that it does not make it thru the process. The dip is not what harms the scope, it is the rinsing process. Our success rate on scopes are 95% making it thru the process. The ones that usually don’t make it thru the process are the less expensive types rifle scopes and red dots. We do not do any AO adjustment style scopes. All the newer style triple turret scopes make it thru the process just fine.
- Q: Is there maintenance on the firearm or archery equipment?
A: No, Just a damp clean cloth only, you still need to maintain the interior of your firearm.
- Q. Can you dip previously dipped guns that are factory or aftermarket dipped?
- FACT: Any business conducting firearm coatings, engraving or exterior alterations to receiver “MUST” have FFL 01, 03,or 07 classification. Any business conducting this type of service without an FFL is illegal.

Any person who is engaged in the business of camouflaging or engraving firearms as described in this ruling must be licensed as a dealer, which includes a gunsmith, under the Gun Control Act. Performing a cosmetic process or activity, such as camouflaging, that primarily adds to or changes the appearance or decoration of a firearm is not manufacturing. Unlike manufacturing processes that primarily enhance a firearm’s durability, camouflaging is primarily cosmetic. Likewise, external engravings are cosmetic in nature and primarily affect only the appearance of a firearm.
Held, any person who engages in an activity or process that primarily adds to or changes a firearm’s appearance by camouflaging the firearm by painting, dipping, or applying tape does not need to be licensed as a manufacturer under the Gun Control Act.
