Default Kudos to Tim Barry!

Tim recently refinished a Daly .45ACP for me that I bought from one of the PFF members. I have had other firearms refinished in Cerakote so I am aware of what a good Cerakote finish looks like, he did an outstanding job on this firearm!

The slide and controls were done in Graphite black Cerakote and the frame was finished in Stone grey Cerakote. Tim polished the sides of the trigger and hammer, also the ejection port part of the barrel as well as the guide rod and front of the barrel.




Closeups of both sides of the frame and controls. The spot under the thumb safety is not a blemish, it is some excess oil that I neglected to wipe off before taking the photos. There is also a bit of jeweler's rouge on the right side of the hammer that we both apparently missed.



Some of you may be familiar with Customized Creationz out of Washington, MI. I had 3 other firearms refinished in different finishes including Cerakote and salt bath black nitride by Todd McKechnie at CC and I can say with all honesty that Tim did as good a job on my Daly as any of the other firearms I had refinished by Customized Creationz. Below is a P6 that I had Todd do for me a few years ago in black nitride for the slide and controls and OD green on the frame. Up close and personal you cannot tell the difference in the quality of finishes of those two guns.



Great job Tim, and I can't wait to get my old Smith back to see what you have done to that one! Tim is more reasonable than CC on his prices, you don't have to pay an extra 30 or 40 bucks for return insured shipping and he is a nice guy to deal with. I do hope that you who are local to the P'cola area will stop in and give Tim some business this coming year. I know firsthand how tough it is in a good economy to start up a new business so help him out and maybe he will become the next "go to" gun store in the P'cola area!

Default Great job Tim!

Very nice!!!! I'll be talking to Tim next week about one or two that I'd love to have done! I highly recommend supporting a real up and coming business at Baywatch Arms off of nine mile (on the west side of Pensacourt). We just don't have that many places in Pensacola to get a fair price on firearms, transfers, refinishing etc.

Best Regards,
Jerry
