Single Piece Anodizing

Hi, I wasn't sure where to post this so I guess I'll try here.

I am getting a new gun soon and the back cap seems to have not been traded when the colours were swapped. Where can I go to get a single part anodized without paying a $75 fee because I don't have 10 parts, etc..

PM me please.

one peice is always going to be a minimun of around $50 because there is a minumum amount of work needed to be done just to anodize something. At the absolute best you might be able to get you part included with someone elses batch for a reduced price($20-30). But then you are subject to wait for someone to choose your color or settle for the color that they want.

Unfortunately all anodizing companies have a minimum price because they will have to go through the same process with 1 part as they would with a whole gun. I would just do what ccluff2 said.

cheapest way would be to trade the piece for the color you want, otherwise you might be lucky enough to find someone who does very small scale anodizing (not as a business) and have them do it for $10-20 bucks

what is the piece and colors? (current color/color you want)

This sounds like your best bet - just ask annodizers if they're doing a run in the color you want or anything similar, and see if they'll do yours at the same time. If you're nice and respectful about it then I'm sure someone wouldn't have a problem with that.

We have never had any kind of minimum order.

I'll have to keep that in mind the next time I need a small part done.
