If you have some stainless rifles already I’d say cerakote it and the possibilities are endless especially if you order a McMillan or Manners stock. They have many color combos to choose from in their lineup.
Here are just a few of mine and my brothers rifles we have coated over the past few years.

MN for now
So, working up specs for a custom rifle. My opening assumption is I would go stainless steel action, bolt, bolt knob, picatinny rail and barrel and thread protector. I would have “satin”/bead blasted to take the shine off. But now I am also considering cerakoting the whole barrel/action/rail setup. Any thoughts, preferences, considerations or pictures that will help me along the decision process?

EDIT: - Also will add, this is primarily going to be a hunting rifle if that matters to anyone.

Why don't you cerakote the stainless. IMO it would be silly to not get a stainless on a custom. But that's just me.

I think some of the cera combos have a certain cool factor, but after having done one I'm back in the blue or satin camp...the edge going to satin for the worker tools.

Hawkins Hybrid 1pc rings are all I run now. They are rock solid and extremely well made. If going custom action they can be pinned also.
