Firearms are what our business was founded on. We have assembled a team of experts in each firearm service we offer. Go ahead and take a gander at our 3 service categories below.
We demand only the best when it comes to Cerakote Applicators. Our team of applicators are required to hold to the highest standards in the industry. Our company refuses to compromise or cut corners. This company was built on the quality we produce, and that won’t change.
Our head firearms applicator was formerly a coater and instructor for Cerakote Corporate Headquarters. With an education in coating, years of experience with Cerakote, and multiple awards, our Certified firearms applicator is second to none.
Our team of gunsmiths are specialists in firearm customization, modification, repair, and fabrication. Whether you want to accurize or customize your firearm, OC Custom’s Gunsmiths offer exceptional work at fair prices and turnaround times.
If you are a long time firearms enthusiast like myself, then you have gone through your share of gunsmiths who didn’t live up to their claims. Either their quality was lacking or they promised you a month turnaround and a year later you’re fighting to get your gun back from them. I’ve been there and I feel your pain. It has taken me many years to assemble our all-star cast of Gunsmiths and each one was tried and proven on my personal firearms before being considered.
The reason we assembled a team of them was to utilize each smith for their specific strengths. Most Gunsmiths try to be a jack-of-all-trades and tackle every client’s request but the reality is that most gunsmiths have one or two strengths they do exceptionally well. These are the strengths we look for and use. No matter what service you want done, we will assign our specialist in that field to it. All our gunsmiths are licensed and certified and have years of real experience under their belt.
Visit our price list page for pricing on some of our basic services. Many gunsmithing jobs are custom and will require a quote. Please contact us for a quote and turnaround time for your specific customizations.

When you combine a computer genius with a talented artist and then give him an extremely powerful laser you end up with OC Custom Engraving.
Our engraving is unique and second to none. We are known for our 3D style of engraving. This is a technique where we take a logo and engrave specific parts of the logo at differing depths in order to produce a 3D effect. At the end of the process we are able to engrave certain colors into metals in order to bring your logo to life. The vast majority of photos in our engraving gallery (including the photo above) do not have any color fill added to them. The colors you see within the engraving are typically produced through our techniques with the laser.
Here are some of the common questions we receive regarding engraving:
How much does it cost?
We have some set costs for engraving such as serial numbers, safe/fire marks, and basic alphanumeric text. You can view these costs on our price list by clicking Here. When it comes to logos, pictures, and other custom work we recommend that you email us and include the following info for an accurate quote:
- Pic or example of the logo or design you want (if a pic is not available then a description or hand drawn pic will suffice)
- Type of item or firearm it will be engraved on (e.g., AR15 lower receiver)
- Approximate size and location of the engraving (e.g., right side magwell and maximize size or 2.5″ width x 2.25″ height)
What type of file do I need to send you for my logo?
We can use any standard file such as jpg, PDF, word doc, etc. however, these files may be subject to a setup fee. If you are computer savvy then our preferred file type is “.ai” (Adobe illustrator file) and second best would be a vector file. These 2 file types can help reduce or eliminate the setup fee.
Why is there a setup fee and what does it cover?
The setup fee is a one time fee per custom logo, which covers the cost of our graphic designer converting your standard file into an illustrator file. Once the file is converted much time is spent cleaning up the pixilation that is typically present in most pics. Cleaning up the pixilation is extremely important in producing a detailed engraving with clean sharp lines. If you choose a logo/pic from our engraving gallery then you can avoid paying the setup fee since we already have a clean copy of that logo/pic in our system. You can also reduce or eliminate this fee by providing us with a clean “.ai” file (Illustrator file) or a clean vector file.
Should I engrave my item before or after coating it?
This is completely up to you and will depend on the look you want to obtain. We have many examples of both styles in our gallery. We typically recommend to have text engraved prior to coating and logos engraved after coating, but this is just a preference.
