308 Bullet Pen: Spartan
The Spartan 308 Bullet Pens are made from the casings of fired 308 rounds. The casings are first prepped (cleaned and then sandblasted with Aluminum Oxide) and then off gassed (baked) for 30 minutes to insure no contaminants are left behind that would interfere with the Cerakote process. Next the casings get 2 heavy coats of Burnt Broncze Cerakote and then flash cured. After that they get light coat Graphite Black Cerakote and then a light splatter of Graphite Black Cerakote and then flash cured again. After the flash cure the casings then go through the distress (Battleworn) processes to give it worn look. Next the casings get splattered with Smith and Wesson Red Cerakote, they then go in the oven for 2 hours at 250 degrees to get fully cured. Once the casings are fully cured they get an acetone bath to insure the Cerakote properly adhered to the casing and the Cerakote layers adhered to each other. Cerakote is a ceramic paint and if applied properly will not be affected by thinners or acetone. If the casings are good to go they are cleaned and get laser engraved with the Spartan image. After the image is engraved it gets polished and then the casings are assembled into pens.
Our 308 Pens come with Black Ink. The ink cartridges are replaceable, which can be done by firmly gripping the top and bottom casing and pull away from the center completely pulling the pen apart, unscrew the ink cartridge, and replace it with a new one. The 308 pens take a Cross Pen style ink cartridge.
