Found a place that has Aero Precision Cerakote Lower/Upper Combos for $144. Anyone know of any place cheaper? Most people seem to say AP stuff is good, but i've also read they don't put the cerakote over parkerization, which can cause the bare metal to be exposed. Anyone have this issue?

Parkerizing can't scratch?

besides, I thought that coating was just for steel. Uppers and lowers are Aluminum.

Cerakote is some pretty tough stuff and aluminum receivers are hardcoat anodized, usually.

Aluminum can't be parkerized/phosphate coated. You can try, but nothing will happen. Same for any other non-ferrous metal. You can drop that stuff in there for a week and all you will do is make it hot.

So don't worry about that :p
