All shipping of serialized and non-serialized parts can be handled through us because we are a licensed FFL manufacturer / dealer. We are happy to provide a FILE copy of our FFL to you or your shipping source when requested. For serialized parts and complete firearms, we are required to ship it back to the address that is listed on your government issued ID (i.e. driver’s license, passport, military ID, etc.) that you provide. When shipping these types of items, please include a legible copy of your chosen form of identification. For non-serialized parts, you ship it directly to us, and we can ship them back to anyone or anywhere you specify. It is required by law that a person that does not possess a valid FFL, must ship handguns by 2nd day air with a contract carrier (UPS, FEDEX, etc.). Long guns can be shipped with ground service by the USPS or a contract carrier. We will primarily use insured USPS for return shipping mainly because of cost of service.

Basic guidelines for shipping firearms:

*Handguns must be shipped 2nd day air by a contract carrier. Please do not use your local post office. We do not know the consequences of shipping it any other way, but we do know it is a law and why risk it?
*Long guns and non-serialized parts can be shipped by ground service. USPS is the cheapest.
*Please use either carrier pickup or take it directly to a service center, it will save you money and it is much more reliable than your local pack and ship center.
*Please buy insurance for the full value of you items. Insurance is cheap, firearms are not and please note on your work order how much insurance you would like placed on your return
shipment.
*Declare that you are shipping an unloaded firearm for repairs. They should give you no trouble, it is perfectly legal.
*MAKE SURE YOUR FIREARM IS UNLOADED!!! You would be surprised with what we have received.
*Do not ship any ammo with your firearms.
*Make sure your firearms and parts are packed well with sufficient cushioning for the journey.
*Please include an itemized packing list of everything that you send us. We cannot be held responsible for anything that is not documented.
*Be sure to fill out the order form completely – include a detailed list of any parts you are sending us! (If you are disassembling the firearm yourself it must be accompanied by a full inventory list of parts. The firearm must be completely stripped – every pin, spring and screw must be disassembled. If not listed on the inventory we cannot be held responsible for it) If you are sending the firearm in assembled, labor fees for disassembly/reassembly will apply – see our price list for labor fees.
*Let us know the color/pattern you would like your project to be painted – BE SPECIFIC! The more detail the better so we can paint your project exactly how you envision it. You can even include reference pictures if you’d like!

*When ready to ship, please print and fill out our ORDER FORM and send your items to: BLOWNDEADLINE CUSTOM

Anything that we cerakote, is covered by our limited lifetime warranty. If your firearm finish ever cracks, peels, chips, or breaks because of our workmanship, we will repair, replace, or refinish it at no cost to you, to and from shipping included. We cannot cover excessive wear from normal use (i.e. holster marks, blemishes from dropping or abuse, etc.). Our return policy is that if you are unhappy with our work, or with any products you receive from us, please feel free to contact us, and we will correct the issue right away. If you decide you do not want any product you buy from us, we will accept returns within 15 days of you receiving the product, given the items are in an unaltered from the condition we shipped it in.

We suggest treating Cerakoted firearms as you would any other firearm. Cerakote is impervious to all solvent, lubricants, and other products designed for use on firearms. Cerakote is TOUGH, as long as you don’t drop it in a vat of acid or leave it in the ocean for a couple years, it will be fine.

With Cerakote, virtually any part of a gun that is not made of rubber or silicon can be coated. However, our policy is to not coat any critical contact points (sears, safeties, triggers, disconnectors, etc.), aftermarket match triggers, springs, inside of barrels or chambers. Some springs that are attached permanently to a gun must sometimes be coated. In these instances these spring will be coated, but we will not coat anything that will affect the function of your firearm.

Cerakote is a ceramic based finish that can be applied to metals, plastics, polymers and wood. The unique formulation used for Cerakote ceramic coating enhances a number of physical performance properties including abrasion/wear resistance, corrosion resistance, chemical resistance, impact strength, and hardness. Each of these properties is rigorously tested to guarantee that Cerakote products remain at the fore-front of the ceramic coatings market. Cerakote ceramic coatings utilize state-of-the-art technology to out-perform any competitive coating in both laboratory settings and real world applications. For more information please visit the Cerakote Website.

At Blowndeadline we use Cerakote H-Series firearm coatings. This allows us to create unique, one of a kind custom finishes and themed builds.
We also use Cerakote’s C-Series and Glacier series for high temp applications (suppressors)
All patterns and stencils are created in-house using Heat resistant vinyl allowing for crisp, clean lines. We can create any type of custom stencil needed to produce some of the most unique finishes in the industry.
“How durable is Cerakote??” I Can’t tell you how many times I have heard this question. Cerakote is more durable than any other aftermarket sprayed on finish. There are many types of finishes, sprayed, chemical, plated to name a few. Nickel, Hard Chrome are some of the most durable finishes you can use but have their limits as far as color choice! The combination of Cerakote H Series and Cerakote’s Armor Clear makes our finishes even more durable than non-cleared work.
As far as wear, it’s natural for items to wear due to heat and friction. Cerakote isn’t the cure-all, end-all solution but it will last if it is properly taken care of. I often use a silicon cloth to wipe down my slide. It helps reduce friction and prolong your Cerakote finish.
