Stay away… good people, but high prices and low turn around time. Not quite as higher quality as Cobra or Adrenaline.

There are hundreds of anodizing companies with paintball gun and accessory anodizing experience. This is just a short list of my favorites to get you going. I have had all these different companies do something or other for me over the years. In most cases, anodizing will be anodizing. You should first try to find the lowest anodizing price for what you want, then find the closest one to you, as it does take a while to get everything finished.

Mike's All-To-Famous FAQ Back and Forth

Billy Joe Bob Shmit:
"Well, Mike the G, i'm gonna get my impulse milled by SIC, and was thought it would be cool to have some raw aluminum showing through. How do you think that would look?"

Mike the G:
"Butt ugly, not only does raw aluminum with streaks of anodized metal showing through look nasty, it will lead to your gun rusting, getting stained from paint and oil, swelling, and also being able to get scratched a lot easier. Trust me, you may think you gun will look cool with some raw aluminum showing, or streaks of it poping through the ano, but it won't, trust me. So why didn't you want to get it ano'd again... and tell me the truth...

Billy Joe Bob Shmit:
"I didn't get my last pay check from Thirsty-One Flava's yet...

Mike the G:
"

Remeber, raw aluminum leads to:
-Swelling of the body
-Scratching easily
-Staining from paint and oil
-Rusting
-Getting Dumped"


WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE ANODIZER?

Good post. Something you might wanna add: the importance of annodizing vs. leaving it bare (if there is any...bear aluminum wears more quickly but idk how serious this is).

TPD, why so many posts today? You need to get your *** back to work and make us some mystery guns
