FAQ's

Do y’all do transfers? How much are your transfers?


Yes – we do transfers. We have our FFL on file with many distributors and dealers. If we aren’t with them, we are happy to send our FFL to your seller to make a smoother transfer experience. We charge: $20 FLAT FEE, per item, for all transfers. CASH ONLY. We handle transfers on Tuesdays and Thursdays 10am-7pm and Saturdays 10am-3pm. (Don't call us 3.4 minutes after you get your shipping notification. We will get in touch as soon as we've had time to open the things, verify verify the things, and do our required gov'ment things.)




Can I have a copy of your FFL?


That's a hard no, good buddy. Send your request to ffl@armedconcepts.com and we will send get in touch with your seller as soon as we can.




How much does it cost to coat … ?


We will always tell you “well, that depends.”. The cost of the project varies based on your weapon/knife/club/part, the number of colors/theme, extra bits and parts, labor, shipping and etc. You can get a ballpark idea by checking out our pricing page. We can give you a much cleaner estimate if you call the shop or stop over to discuss your project. We offer discounts for our LEOs, Service Members, and First Responders and sometimes just to the regular good human if we're in a super mood that day.




How long does it take?


It depends on the project. It could be as little as a week to as many as a whole lot of weeks. We will discuss when you submit your project and set a realistic turnaround time. Sometimes it's done way sooner than predicted, sometimes longer than predicted.

Remember: this is custom work done by just two-three people and it takes time. The theme might not make sense and we have to think on it a minute. The weapon might be a turd and not cooperating with the required prep. We might be waiting on some distributor to get us parts. We could be gotten jammed up on a terrible project prior to yours that's caused a domino effect. Many things contribute to the deliverable.




Do y’all have a laser?


Yes, and it’s attached to a freaking shark’s head. (Just kidding, but yes, we have a laser and we can do basic work to NFA markings to all the cool sh!t in between.)




Do y’all do slidecuts?


We partner with some of the best in Texas to handle that work. Leave it with us and we make sure it’s done, on time, and back for coating to save you the hassle and expense of running around.




Do y’all stipple?


We pull "Grandpa" (aka Fortune Tactical Innovations) out of the nursing home when needed to jam out some sweet stipple. We can get you squared away with basic to complex. We can even handle those recovery and salvage jobs. You can see all of his work on the Gram, check him out.




Do y’all sell guns?


Yup. We do. We try and keep a reasonable non-custom inventory. We're happy to try and order whatever you'd like, at a fair price, and have it delivered quickly (when possible).




What are your hours?


We are open Tuesday thru Friday 10am to 7pm. Mondays 3pm to 7pm and Saturdays 10am to 3pm. We might be here a little earlier than that. We might be here a little later than that. We sometimes close to spend time with family or trade events. We will keep our hours updated on the Google(r) for quick reference.




Where are y’all located?


We are at 18300 Strack Drive, Suite 400 Spring 77379. Our closest large intersection is Louetta and Kuykendahl. We are in the commercial business park behind the Advanced Auto and Dunkin Donuts. (and right next to that “pay by the hour” motel … don’t judge us based on that!)




Do y'all hydrodip or "skins"?


Nope, that's not our jam. We aren't into the wallpaper style applications.




What is Cerakote?


Cerakote is a Polymer-Ceramic Composite coating that can be applied to metals, plastics, polymers and wood. The unique formulation used for Cerakote ceramic coating enhances a number of physical performance properties including abrasion/wear resistance, corrosion resistance, chemical resistance, impact strength, and hardness. Each of these properties is rigorously tested to guarantee that Cerakote products remain at the forefront of the ceramic coatings market. Cerakote ceramic coatings utilize state-of-the-art technology to out-perform any competitive coating in both laboratory settings and real world applications.




If I Cerakote, will it scratch or wear off?


Short answer, it can. If you can scratch the substrate, you can scratch the coating. Normal wear and tear is expected similiar to factory coatings. It should never bubble up or peel off.




Do y'all buy guns or do consignments?


Never say never. We will have an honest conversation with you about your bangstick and see if it is something we can work with to sell. Standard answer is generally "no, but let's talk".
