Its like putting lipstick on a pig, what it looks like doesn't change what it really is.
LOL, what a visual. I wont pay good money for jeans with holes in em or worn out looking firearms. Guess I'm just old fashioned, or maybe just old, LOL.

Yea to each his own but they don't have even the remotest battle worn look. They look more like guns that some one started refinishing and took a break from.

Worn from use is awesome. But as a fashion statement...screams urban hipster BBQ.

Now that's funny.

I wouldn't pay to have it done to any of my guns and I probably wouldnt buy one with that treatment but .. some of the renditions are kind of neat in a cosplay way. I have seen some that are horrible but others I like. Not enough to do it but more like ... "oh that's really nice .. on him."

If someone likes it, that's cool. Just not for me. Like I said earlier, I'm not gonna buy jeans with holes or guns that look worn out.

Given how less durable Cerakote finishes are compared to hard anodized (and I say this as a happy owner of FDE AR), Just take the money you'd spend on a "professionally distressed" finish and spend it on a carbine class or two and you'll get a "battleworn" look and gain some proficiency with your AR in the process.

I don't mind the look of honest wear on a firearm. Of course to me, that's totally different than having idiot marks...

I just saw an ad on Texas Guntrader and had to laugh:
"Glock 19 with Battleworn Cerakoting.  Like new in box."  Kind of an oxymoron, LOL
