US Anodizing Frequently Asked Questions
I send my rifle or gun to you, or does it have to go through my
rifle or gun can be sent directly to us for finishing. We are a
Federal Firearms License (FFL) dealer. You can legally ship your
firearm or receiver directly to us and we will also ship it directly
to you. The same rule applies to NFA firearms. Just attach a copy
your existing BATF Form with your package.
don't you have a fixed price for return shipping?
sure would make it easier for everyone! But, since we do not know the
replacement value of a particular part or firearm, we cannot estimate
the cost for the insurance. That is why we let the customer/owner
determine the amounts for shipping and insurance.
there any discounts for Anodizing or refinishing in quantity?
We have special quantity discounts for manufacturers, law enforcement,
military, and dealers.
I have to have my Colt AR15 lower re-anodized to change the color
from gray to black?
your lower is not badly worn, has no corrosion, and the original
anodizing is in tact, no re-anodizing is required to change the
color. You can apply our coating right over the existing anodizing,
but proper procedures must be followed. These procedures are listed
on our coating instructions.
your anodizing and coatings cover dings or scratches on parts?
question. It sure would be nice to have a magic coating! If you
are familiar with auto body or painting, you know that all imperfections
on the metal must be filled or sanded prior to painting. The same
rule applies to metal finishing. Any imperfection on the metal (dents
or deep scratches) must be corrected prior to anodizing or coating.
have a reddish Bushmaster XM15 and I want to change the color to
match my new M4 upper. Do you have a coating available that will
match the new black uppers?
We have coatings that will match the new Military Spec. Black.
