D.I.Y Coating
Hi Nutters!

My currently match darts are Jamie Lewis 23g Rasta dart & I love them but wanted to try the black coated one Jamie is currently using, which aren't available by Red Dragon. I'm not sure why Red Dragon would sell these, I'd imagine they would be very popular. This got me thinking about my match darts before my rasta darts which were RVB Phase 5 23g which I'm sure you know are black, silver & gold. I really liked the combination of these, even if the black section didn't take long before it started wearing. 

So I thought it was worth put this post out for discussion, if anybody has coated there own darts before? It would be amazing if somebody know someone that can do black & gold coatings! And add gold & black coating with a new set of Rasta darts as the Barney Phase 5's are.

Don't know if its possible to do the same kind of coating, its probably Black Titanium Nitride. You can do some other type of black paint type though but it wont be as good, same applies to gold nitride coating but you can easily gold plate them with a gold plating kit.

I called (maybe emailed, I don't remember at this point) a local pvd coating place and they didn't even return my call.

You can film dip but I would wonder how well it would hold up.

the Shot Grafix line is dipped I believe.

Wanted to bring this one back up. I remember years ago seeing another guy on a different forum gold coat part of his darts...
Any chance someone here knows how? I wouldn't mind having a second set of darts clearance 22g in gold Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

That would have been me. I had a set of Masons gold plated. I sent them to a place called TTI in Birmingham (they have now changed their name to Hauck Heat Treatment: https://www.ttigroup.co.uk

I paid just over £30 and they did a great job (they do all the PVD for one of the major dart manufacturers). Can't remember the guy I dealt with now but they are a very approachable company and responded to my emails within minutes!

If there is any gun smiths in your area they might or might know who does Cerakoting. It is extremely tough and I believe it has a similar feel to black oxide coating. Also,  I've been told it should last as long as the dart. 

A friend of mine contacted a local gun shop that does cerakoting and they thought they could do a set of darts for under $50. I haven't done it but I'm thinking about it on an old set of Black Widows.

I found a gunsmith here in Ontario.
He quoted me $60 CAD to coat three sets of darts.
One gold, one black, and one burnt bronze.
I'm thinking of buying two more sets of Darts Clearance darts and sending my three sets to get coated.

Me too!
I just ordered the other two sets off DC, so that will take about 8-9 days alone.
Not sure how long it will take to ship, get coated and re shipped, but patience must be had!

For cerakote?

This is what he sent me:

10 h hardness..product is gunkote
2400 hrs sulphuric acid no effect.
Yes smooth..1 micron thick.
Used by u.s. navy and all nato spec. Forces.

A quick search gave me a few different answers as to which is better: Cerakote or Gunkote, but both seem good.
