Got a brass and a copper one this time. The first time around I bought the polished aluminum one. Unfortunately all of them will be stuck with a friend in the USA until he can travel to South America again :)

Maybe consider doing a 2u or 2.25+2.75u offering someday? I understand the bulk of the market is 60/65% keebs these days, but there’s a decent ortho/40% niche out there too.

Do you still need the cerakote clear coat for the polished version?

Copper has antimicrobial properties, similar to silver. Using coating over it will cancel it out.
Something that might be taken into consideration, especially during the pandemia.

Got myself the polished copper version  :cool:

Only if you want to stop the patina.

Hi,

I asked in the IC but never got a reply. I really love the look, but I am worried about fingerprints showing.

-Does the clear cerakote prevent finger prints on the polished copper?
-If not, would a Polished Aluminium work?

Sorry about that... Lots of comments, and for sure some slipped through the cracks. Yes. The cerakote clear not only helps stop the patina process, but also reduces finger prints from showing.
