Cryptic Coating Grand Opening

    Ever wanted a gold plated BCG? Cryptic Coating can help with that.  Using PVD (Physical Vapor Disposition or CVD (Chemical Vapor Disposition) to coat AR parts, they are creating ultra hard but durable coatings.  On top of the normal NiB they are doing black, gold, bronze silver and a manganese phosphate.  Personally I am fond of the high gloss gold and bronze.

    On top of just looking cool, they do offer lubricity properties as well as wear resistance, easier cleaning and increased cyclic rates.  If you want more info on their coatings, and what they offer, they have a very good link that explains each one and all the info for here here:
