Gen4 Firearms Coating
Gen4 is latest evolution of thermoset polymer ceramic coating technology, and is now standard on all Ed Brown coated guns. It replaces the popular Gen III coating we have used since 2006.
We have been allowed the unique opportunity to work with the manufacturers of this coating to address our specific needs. These needs included an attractive appearance and better wear properties than existing polymers, but without any loss of the exceptional corrosion protection these coatings offer.
Gen4 is made up of a special formulation that offers the best wear resistance and corrosion protection known to date. Wear is significantly improved over traditional oxide bluing, and is significantly better than older chemistry polymers, including Gen III. Wear is still possible however, and no coating in existence will prevent wear entirely.
The appearance of Gen4 is similar to that of finely finished bead blast bluing, and although it is military quality, you will not have to live with a military appearance. Gen4 is available in black, specially formulated to look identical in color to traditional matte finished bluing. Gen4 is also available in Stealth Grey and Battle Bronze.
Gen4 is available on any Ed Brown handgun already purchased and in service. Download the installation order form for details on sending in an Ed Brown firearm for Gen4 coating.
