Ok, we're kinda proud of ourselves on these. We've developed a process to Cerakote scopes with the heat-cured H Series formula, even high end ones like the Leupold VX-6HD with Firedot in the back here.
Update 2022: A few have asked if we still do these. Ha! This little blog post got indexed by Google and we were off to the races! Literally thousands now—any scope, any color. Leupold, Zeiss, Swarovski, Sig Sauer BDX, Steiner, Nightforce, Vortex, Burris & more. Made to match not only Browning X-Bolt, but the Ruger American Go Wild, Christensen Arms Mesa and Ridgeline, Weatherby Vanguard & more. We just completed our second Cerakote shop expansion in as many years, and we're the only shop on the continent with this much scope experience :) See our Cerakoted Optics pages for more info.
Yes, the new Browning Smoked Bronze is an available color!
The batch above just left for a large Michigan retailer, who is making Browning XBolt Pro packages as seen at SHOT Show 2017. (And honestly, we're a little disappointed that whoever did Browning's didn't coat the screws on the mounting rings. But we digress....)

Can the Browning X-Bolt Pro Long Range be chambered in 338 Lapua Magnum?

What are your prices to cerakote a scope,rings and base I have?
Paula Downs Gibbs
2/12/2018 06:49:56 am
Hi Tom! The cost to Cerakote is $65. Most scopes also need to have the eyepiece rings engraved so the numbers/markings remain visible. The cost for that is $25. We can alternatively tape that off and leave it black if you prefer. Thanks for the inquiry:)

I’ve got a Leupold vari lll, rings and bases I’d like done in burnt bronze for my Browning Hell’s Canyon.

Hi Randy. Sure thing, send it on in. Instructions are on our Out of Town Customers page in the Cerakote menu. Give us a call during open hours or email us if you have any questions. Thanks, Paula

I am wanting to have scope base and rings cerekote bronze.
2/6/2021 05:45:18 pm
Can you also match the bronze Ridgeline? I have one of our SCI 2020 rifles of the year and I think it would be really cool to add a matching V6 HD and rings to top it off
3/18/2018 08:42:08 pm
I am buying a hells canyon speed and would like a scope with the same coating. Do you sell them? How much are they? Do you do all brands or just luepold?
Paula Downs Gibbs
3/19/2018 12:30:18 pm
We Cerakote scopes to order, and do not keep coated ones in stock since there such a wide range of them. We can certainly quite you on any scope you have in mind, and most brands. We have so far worked on Leupold, Nikon and Swarovski scopes, but I think we can do any brand. Feel free to call during business hours, ur shoot us an email to service@GibbsGuns.com for more detailed info. Thanks for asking!

I need a scope to put on my 7mm Hell canyon

Will Cerakote a Leupold scope void the lifetime warranty from Leupold
Paula Downs Gibbs
4/6/2018 08:16:37 pm
We are not associated with Leupold and cannot speak for them, however, they have told me by phone that Cerakote does not void the warranty. They can be reached at 1-800-LEUPOLD if you have further questions.
5/7/2018 01:30:00 pm
I just received my cerakoted Leupold scope to match my hells canyon 300. wm and boy does it look awesome on the rifle. Gibbs done a great job on the cerakote job, it looks great. I would recommend anyone who is looking for a good cerakote job to check these guys out. Great service and very friendly. Thanks guys!!!!
12/29/2018 09:49:37 pm
What scope do you have? I am working hard to find a great scope for my hells canyon 300wm.
12/30/2018 09:43:19 am
I haven't purchased one for my 6.5 heels canyon. Looking at Virtex Viper. Vortex said if I cerakote to put the rings on before coating as they indicated rings would not fit correctly after coating. I have never heard of this before.
9/28/2022 04:31:25 pm
Vortex viper price to cerakote
5/7/2018 07:12:17 pm
So glad to hear that Levi! And thanks for posting!
8/1/2018 02:49:35 pm
Amazing work, and thanks sharing this information. Quick question, if I send in my Leupold VX-6HD to have it match the barrel of my Hells Cayon XBolt, is it possible to have my rugged ridge extreme bipod and picatinny rail mount coated with Cerakote to match the stock, and if not possible for the stock, to have it matched to the scoop / barrel (burnt copper)?
8/18/2018 02:58:58 pm
What kind of turnaround time for a scope sent from out of town?
Paula Downs Gibbs
8/18/2018 04:12:43 pm
Hi Steve. Turnaround time is 3-4 weeks. Thanks for asking!
9/11/2018 03:24:20 pm
Does getting the Leupolds cerakoted do anything to the lifetime manufacturers warranty?
Paula Downs Gibbs
9/11/2018 04:48:11 pm
We cannot speak for Leupold, but they have told us it does not as long as it is not damaged in coating. Call 1-800-leupold for confirmation from the manufacturer. Thanks!

1/10/2019 08:10:45 am
Jay, missed this somehow. We do have a place that will import them into Canada on a per piece basis. There are additional costs and time associated with it. Please calk or email for full details. Thanks for the inquiry!
11/19/2018 12:04:43 pm
Hello how do I place an order? Is it possible to get the scope prior to Christmas? Please advise.
11/28/2018 04:01:27 pm
Leupold has custom colors available in dark earth and covert brown, do either of those colors match the burnt bronze on the Hells Canyon? I've aske Leuold and they said ask Browning, Browning said ask Leupold. So I just found your website and I'm guessing that if they matched there wouldn't be much to talk about here.
1/10/2019 07:47:48 am
Somwhow my notificatoons were turned off, sorry for the delayed reply. The color is Burnt Bronze. I don't know if Leupold offers it. Thanks!
12/26/2018 07:36:02 pm
Looking to purchase a scope for my new Browning Hells Canyon and one of the option that I am looking at is the ATN day/night scope with attached range finder and was wandering if that was an option to cerakote to match the gun?
1/10/2019 07:54:47 am
Sorry somehow my notifications were turned off. We have done many brands of optics, and I'm sure we can do that too. It looks like there is a lot going on with it, so we couldn't tell you until we see it exactly what will be taped off and what can be coated. It may also carry a small upcharge for additional prep work. Thanks for the inquiry!
12/26/2018 11:57:11 pm
How much is a Leupold vex-3 3.5-10x40 duplex and mounts, rings to fit. Browning x-bolt 308 hell’s canyon finish.
1/10/2019 07:58:00 am
Dean, apologies for delay in reply, somehow my notifications were turned off. If we haven't spoken already, please give a call or shoot us an email for pricing. Prices change regularly, and it would be inappropriate to quote in this space. Thanks for the inquiry!
12/28/2018 06:25:22 pm
Vortex told me if I have Viper HS cerakoted to match my zbrowning he'll canyon that I must leave the rings on the scope as the coating will make it so the rings won't fit.
1/10/2019 08:08:29 am
Mike, I have heard this question a few times now, and I am not really sure where it comes from. We have coated hundreds of scopes, most Leupold, but many others including Vortex. We have never heard of this issue from anyone, and we have mounted many of them ourselves with no difficulty. Cerakote was specifically designed to be at least as durable as powder coating while remaining ultra thin for firearms and their tight tolerances. I will check back with our Vortex customers and try Vortex themselves to see if I can find out more, but as far as we know, this is not an issue.
1/13/2019 01:54:45 pm
I checked with vortex who told me the same thing, but had no real information on actual issues. I'll update again after I've heard back from our Vortex customers.
1/9/2019 01:34:08 pm
I have 3 CDS dials for my leupold scope and was looking to send my scope and mounts in to get coated, can you guys coat the cds dials and retain all the info on them?
1/10/2019 07:45:21 am
Sam, we are happy to do the CDS dials. We tape off the number dial so that remains black with white markings. Basically we are Cerakoting the top. Hope that helps!
1/13/2019 05:15:10 pm
So does the information on the top of the dial get covered up or do you leave the top and the bottoms ring black?
1/13/2019 09:35:04 am
can you Ceracote a Vortex crossfire 2 scope to match a Browning Heel Canyon rifle?
1/13/2019 01:52:02 pm
Hi Rich. Sure can. We're working at getting pics together of brands other than Leupold and will post them on the site soon. Thanks for the comment!
2/15/2019 04:26:43 pm
I have a Ruger American Go Wild with a Bronze cerakote on the barrel and receiver. It is close to the Hells Canyon, but not exactly. Do you by any chance try to color match, or do you have a premade formula?
4/16/2019 08:08:51 am
Jim, sorry I missed this earlier. The Go Wild is Burnt Bronze. We have done dozens for tge Ruger, and to our knowledge they have all matched. Hope that helps! Paula
3/30/2019 08:13:26 am
Can you quote me a price on a Hells Canyon Burnt Bronze VX-5HD 3-15x44mm CDS-ZL2 illuminated fire dot please.
4/16/2019 08:11:33 am
Hi Roger! Apologies we didn't see this earlier. It is our policy not to quote on this page as prices change over time, and 5his lasts forever. If you would still like a quote, please shoot us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope we can be of service! Paula
4/15/2019 05:18:59 pm
Would like to match my Leupold VX-3ii 4.5-14X50 CDS SF with my Hells Canyon Speed in Smoke finish. It is not in Burnt Bronze, rather a Cerakote finish in Tungsten color. Is this a finish you can match my scope with?
4/16/2019 08:06:41 am
Yes, we can match the Tungsten! Thanks, Paula.
5/9/2019 10:50:41 am
I have a Leupold fx3 fixed 12 power rifle scope and sun shade that I am interested in having cerakote colored but I am hoping to kinda match it to the boydes laminate stock which is Camo green. Due you do a cerakote color in green?
6/10/2019 02:00:22 pm
Where do I send my scope to get cerakote and how much will it cost
7/19/2019 07:52:24 am
Very nice article!
7/19/2019 07:57:25 am
I've read an article on (https://www.pointoptics.com/best-rifle-scopes/) that recommended the BARSKA 3-9x40mm rifle scope. And I must say it's a good choice!
7/31/2019 10:07:10 pm
I bought a browning with the camo stock and barrel. Do you have a color besides the burnt bronze that will match the browning camo. Scope is a Zeiss v4x16 x50 with turrets.
10/15/2019 06:57:30 pm
Want to send in Burris Scope and Rings and have it Bronze Cerakoted.

8/6/2020 06:37:16 am
Hello. I just purchased a browning hells canyon in burnt bronze cerakote. And I want my scope and rings to match. But I am having trouble finding this. Would y’all happen to offer scope and rings ready to purchase. Either a vortex or leupold already n cerakote

Can & will you Cerakote a Swarovski 5-25x56-Plex-I Scope?
12/22/2021 07:49:37 pm
Hello, I was curious to know if you are able to cerakote a Swarovski DS 5-25 x 52 P. I am asking due to the digital components built into the scope. I was hoping to have it match my Browning X-bolt pro long range rifle that is factory done in "Burnt Bronze". Thank you for your time!
1/26/2022 06:27:31 am
I found it interesting when you said to protect the unique gold ring and optics, the scope is meticulously prepared. I used to think differently about it not until you explained it briefly and it really got my attention. What you said about scope rings was really interesting to me.
