    Default AR15 Raw Upper -- Interior Surface Finish

    Hi,

    I have a raw 7075 aluminum upper. I plan on applying cerakote to the whole rifle. My question is how do I finish the interior of the upper receiver, such that my bolt carrier doesn't just wear it away to nothing.

    Any suggestions? Do I have to anodize the whole upper first, then cerakote it?

    If I have to anodize it, anyone know of a cheap place around Boston that will do it?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Just cerakote the whole thing. Inside and out. It will be fine.

    Just spray it on in there? Any trick to getting an even coat?
