Default Bay Area Certified Cerakote Applicators?

I recently acquired a 1989 West German P226. While the wear on it is more than reasonable I'm looking to Cerakote it to restore the look and also protect it in the future. If anyone has been to any of these certified applicators I found on Cerakote's site and has feedback please let me know! Or, if you've had a good experience with someone else who isn't officially certified but has good rates and turnaround time I'd appreciate that too.

Certified Applicators listed:

Napa: D&B Custom Coatings
Vacaville: Delta Precision Firearms
Fremont: Chapman Concepts
Livemore: Ace Custom Coating
San Jose: Sagisi Customs and RC Refinishing

Aren't those guns aluminum in the grip frame and stainless slides? I don't think you'll get much in terms of protection but it'll look prettier. Sagisi is supposedly the man.

Yeah my motivation is 95% superficial, but I'm hoping it can also help prevent rust and/or corrosion even though I won't be exposing it to harsh elements.

Have you considered something other than cerakote? I know its not in the Bay Area but Ford's master bluing is pretty great for rust prevention and gives any firearm a wow factor.

I was surprised at the location of this question, considering Sagisi is up there. He does quality work and isn't a jerk.

I didn't know about Sagisi before posting this thread but I definitely do now! From the looks of his Instagram he does great work. Thanks everyone for the feedback, will be making an appointment soon!

Try calling Metal Dog Tactical in North San Jose. It's a really good LGS with friendly and helpful people and offer cerakote services. BTW, I don't give a rat's ***** about paying a little more to support the LGS over online ordering, especially in this tech-infested high cost of living environment.
