Ok here is the deal.
I removed the barrel from a Rem700 and sent the action off to be blue printed, have a cut rifled, fluted barrel installed. They also chambered it for 300WM
The barreled action was then sent off to the proof house where they proof fired it. (A legal requirement here in UK)
I then wanted the barreled action cerakoted.
The company carrying out the work then sent it to the NIC Certified Cerakote coater.
Imagine my surprise when the guy calls me to tell me he has an action, recoil lug, barrel and muzzle brake all as seperate components.
Do any of you guys strip the rifles right down before cerakoting?
