Top-Quality Custom Firearm Coating and Upfitting Services

Who We Are

Tomkat Coatings is a premier firearms upfitter based in central North Carolina.

Specializing in Cerakote firearm finishes, we turn the ordinary into extraordinary. Meticulous attention to detail, an industry-leading satisfaction guarantee, and our exclusive New-Every-Two™ program, set us apart from the rest of the pack.

Satisfaction Guarantee

At Tomkat Coatings, we take the utmost pride in our craftsmanship, which is why every firearm that leaves our shop is backed by our unconditional satisfaction guarantee. If you aren't 100% satisfied with our work, we'll make it right — no ifs, ands, or buts.


Our coatings are tough, but when a gun works as hard as you do, it's bound to see some wear and tear. That's why every coating we apply carries our New-Every-Two™ promise: when your gun is ready for a refresh, send it back to us (one time per every two years), and we'll reapply the same coating for free!* Contact us today for more details.

What We Do

We do more than just "paint" guns — we protect your investment (and maybe even up your range cred, too 😉).

Our coating services center around Cerakote's industry-leading products, which not only look great, but perform under the harshest conditions. And our certified gunsmiths and Type 07 FFL, mean we can provide a full range of firearm services, from gunsmithing to complete manufacture.


Tough doesn't have to mean ugly. Our coatings will not only protect your firearm investment from wear, chemicals, and corrosion, but it'll stand out from the sea of black and stainless at the range.

Cerakote High-Temp Coating

From full-auto firearms and suppressors, to exhaust headers on your car or bike, if it gets hot, we can protect it. Cerakote's High Temperature Ceramic Coatings can withstand temperatures up to 1800 degrees fahrenheit.


From minor cosmetic upgrades and routine gunsmithing, to complete builds, we can do it all. As a Type 07 FFL, we're fully-licensed for all phases of firearm manufacture. Contact us today, and let us help make your vision a reality.
