WMD Guns About Us

About WMD Guns

WMD Guns is what happens when you bring together a diverse team of experts at the top of their fields. We’ve united metallurgists, chemists, gunsmiths and plating engineers to establish one of the top firearm coating companies in the industry.

WMD Guns products are the outcome of that collective expertise. We sell whole firearms, chassis and individual components that we produce and plate in-house, as well as offerings from other top manufacturers. Many of our selections are made to order.

If you’re looking for high-volume performance coatings, performance coated firearms or high-grade plated gun parts to complete your own build, you’re in the right place.

Advantages of Working With the Gun Coating Experts

Custom gun coatings like nickel boron are more popular than ever thanks to their many functional and aesthetic benefits, but they are not all created equal. The formula itself, the application method and the component being plated must all be suited to each other to result in a premium product. 

One of the most popular coatings, nickel boron is highly prized for its striking appearance, natural lubricity, and resistance to heat, wear, and chemical damage. It’s also one of the more challenging to apply correctly, so you’ll find plenty of suppliers releasing substandard items with poor coating practices and formulas that aren’t rated for firearm applications.

WMD products are different. We design firearm components knowing the processes they will undergo, and we use a proprietary nickel boron formulation — NiB-X® — specifically engineered to deliver the lubricity and resilience demanded for peak function in a firearm. We led the charge in perfecting firearm components with nickel boron, and our NiB-X® technology is second to none

As an experienced gun plating service, we offer a variety of other in-demand gun coatings, including salt bath nitride (Nitromet, Melonite), electroless nickel teflon, electroless nickel boron nitride, PVDs, DLC, decorative ceramic topcoatings and more. And we put them all on exhaustively tested, top-grade products ready to perform in any environment. 

About Our Firearms and Parts

AR-platform firearms have a reputation for being the grown-up version of building blocks — and they’ve earned it. WMD Guns caters to customers who want to build their own ideal rig with a vast selection of American-made gun parts. Along with AR components, we sell Glock 19 slides and barrels, and we’re constantly expanding our inventory. 

However, we also sell complete firearms, including AR-15s, AR-10s and various semi-custom chassis models. Use our simple guide to see how to buy WMD firearms online, then get ready to see sub MOA performance right out of the box. 

Since we include gunsmiths in our manufacturing process and design pieces with our coatings in mind, WMD Guns products deliver a level of fit and finish competitors can’t match. 

Our OEM Coating Services

WMD Guns has NiB-X® facilities in Florida and a newly opened NiB-X® plant in North Carolina, just north of Charlotte, called X-Coatings. We work directly with OEM teams to engineer the best coating for their products. Our skilled engineers and chemists offer a one-stop shop for performance coating and plating services.

Let WMD Guns Exceed Your Expectations

Working with an experienced nickel boron firearm coating company is the best way to make sure you get products that deliver superior performance. WMD Guns uses a proprietary generation 5 nickel boron formula engineered for the characteristics most valuable to firearm operation.

What You Get With WMD Guns 

Our team is fully committed to quality, transparency and customer satisfaction. Review our policies and warranty information on the tabs on this page to see how we prioritize those elements in our operations.


• Are these components all American-made?
Yes. All our parts are made in the USA by some of the most established and respected suppliers to the firearms industry. Our goal is to provide you with components that are even higher quality than the parts you’re removing from your gun.

• What can I expect for my investment in NiB-X® coated parts?
You’ll immediately feel a smoother action. Your cleaning time will be greatly reduced, because NiB-X coated surfaces resist fouling adhesion – and powder residue wipes off easily. And since our parts require minimal or no lubrication, you won’t have to contend with the debris that lubricants can attract. Additionally, due to the superior wear resistance of NiB-X you can expect extended parts life.

• Will NiB-X affect accuracy?
Not directly, but the smoother-functioning action and cleaner trigger pull made possible by the NiB-X coating can help you maximize the inherent accuracy potential of your firearm.

• Can I install the parts myself, or do I need to take them to a gunsmith?
While our parts are precisely toleranced and ready to install without additional machining, we recommend that installation(s) of any NiB-X parts be inspected by a competent gunsmith to ensure proper functioning and headspace. The purchaser and/or installer of these parts accepts full responsibility for the correct adjustment and function after such installation has been made or attempted.

• Do you guarantee your products?
Absolutely. We provide a lifetime warranty against chipping, peeling, flaking or wear-through of our NiB-X coating. See our warranty document for full details.
