Bounty Hunter: 308 Bullet Pen
The Bounty Hunter 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. The casings are the scared (scratched) to enhance the Battleworn Cerakote look.
Next the casings get 2 heavy coats of Smith and Wesson Red Cerakote and then flash cured (baked for 15 minutes at 180 degrees). The Bounty Hunter image, cut out of high heat vinyl, is applied.
Next a Custom Green mix of Cerakote is applied over the Red Cerakote and the Bounty Hunter image and then flash cured again.
After the flash cure, the vinyl is removed and a light coat of Graphite Black Cerakote is applied over the entire casing and flash cured again. The casings then go through the distress (Battleworn) process to give it a worn/beat up look. The. casings are then cleaned and the Corvette Yellow Cerakote hash marks are hand painted using a paint brush.
The casings then go in the oven for 2 hours at 250 degrees to get fully cured.
Once the Cerakote is fully cured the casings 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 when applied properly will not be affected by thinners or acetone. If the casings are good to go they are cleaned and 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.
