FAQ's

Can I ship my gun to you for customization?

Yes!  The ATF allows for individuals to send their firearms to an FFL holder (which we are) as long as it is NOT through the Postal Service.  Send them to us via FedEx or UPS.  Please include inside the box: Your name, address, phone number and a description of the work to be done as well as a return shipping label. 


What about my cup?

Of course!  You can ship us your cup or we can provide one for you and include the cost of the cup in your total invoice.


Can you engrave cups?

Not yet.  Currently we do not have the correct laser for engraving cups.  


What is your turnaround time?

We aim to have everything back to you in 2 weeks unless we specify otherwise.  


What about pricing?

Our Cerakote/KG pricelist is available on our website homepage.  We are working on loading the Engraving pricelist, but the best, most accurate way to get a quote is via email at guardiancustomcoating@gmail.com or calling 850-543-5480.  


What firearms can you engrave?

We can very certainly engrave on any black Glock polymer frame and any metal.  The factory colored Glock frames tend to not work out well so we do not recommend.  Other manufacturers have different variables, so some can be engraved, but will need to be coated as well, some simply won't engrave.  Contact us and we will steer you in the right direction!



What items do you offer finger groove removal on?

Typically customers ask for finger groove removal on Glocks to improve the fit an feel in their hand.  Outside of that it would depend on the type of pistol so if you have a request just call and ask!  We'll see what we can do.


What items do you offer undercuts on?

Another mod to improve fit and feel in your hand, undercuts are also ideal for Glocks.  We do not undercut on 42 or 43 because there isn't enough clearance.  Outside of that it would again depend on the type of pistol.



What about the backstrap?

We can modify the backstrap on Gen 4 and 5 Glocks.  It's rarely requested, but it can be done.


What is the difference between Cerakote and KG Gunkote?

The biggest difference between the two is in the application, which doesn't affect you much at all.  KG is thinner and can be applied to more surface areas and the application process does allow for more colors in a design.  The color selection is different, but they both offer the protection benefits such as scratch resistance and rust prevention.  



What are your hours and where are you located?

We currently operate out of our backyard in Navarre, FL, so we are here more than we are not.  You are welcome to stop by and chat, ask about some projects, see our operation.  Just give us a call and we'll set up an appointment!


What forms of payment do you accept?
