  • Why Choose Grit City Cerakote?

Rooftop Arms and Grit City Cerakote are proud to offer ultra-high-quality plating services. This product form is intended to be used for complete or mostly complete firearms. You will notice there is an initial $150 fee applied to each order for plating. This gunsmithing fee is intended to cover the cost of your firearm/item(s) being disassembled and then reassembled by our gunsmith team for your plating job. To do the job correctly, plating is a process that take a lot of man hours and labor both for the preparation and finishing phase.

Typically, our “Full-Service Inspection and Cleaning” is sold as a separate service, however as a bonus to our plating customers, you get the additional cleaning and inspection at no extra cost with your plating order! Your firearm and/or items will arrive back to you having been cleaned/inspected/lubed, as if it was brand new, plus a beautiful plating job! If you want to know more about the inspection and cleaning service, be sure to read about it HERE. The price also includes return shipping with tracking and insurance. This price may seem expensive, but our all-inclusive door-to-door service is second to none! Your firearm will be shipped directly back to your door! No need to ship from/to your local FFL.

Rooftop Arms is not responsible for shipping fees or any shipping liability when the item/s are en route to Rooftop Arms. Please check with the shipping company you are using on specific shipping rules. Generally, firearms cannot be shipped through USPS. FedEx and UPS are happy to ship your “sporting goods” to us using regular shipping services.

  • Lead Times Estimates

Cerakote lead times vary based on volume and demand. Due to the amount of labor involved, lead times for plating are typically much longer than for Cerakote. Typically, your plated items are shipped back to you within 4-6 weeks of the time they are received. Don’t hesitate to contact us with any specific lead time questions before shipping your items.

  • Contact Us If Your Project Doesn’t Apply to This Form!

This form is intended to be used for “most” plating jobs. You will see there are many drop-down options for each type of common firearm. These options are FAR from being an all-inclusive list. If you have a specific type of plating job that doesn’t fit well in this form, reach out to us directly via our contact form and we will get your dream project in motion!

  • Need NFA Items Coated?

Not a problem! Rooftop Arms is an FFL with a SOT, meaning we can work on and manufacture any NFA item. If you are shipping an NFA item, such as a short barrel rifle, suppressor, etc. be sure to include a photocopy of your tax stamp for each item as well as a photocopy of your state ID, driver’s license, or passport in your shipment.
