Starting April 2023, Anderson Manufacturing will release Special Edition Builder Sets that consist of an Anderson lower, upper and handguard with a custom Cerakote finish. Each month they will collect pre-orders for a one-of-a-kind pattern, which will be released the following month. Cerakote is a ceramic-based coating that is applied to various surfaces, including metals like here. Over the years the process has become increasingly popular due to its durability and resistance to wear, corrosion, impact, and chemicals. In this case, the coating will be made by Grit City Cerakote.
