Anodizing help

my plan is to do this to the gun I'll more than likely be picking up which is an etek 4

this is an etek 3 off of ams



I want this done to my etek 4

what color should I get for them to reanodize it

anything I should know?

what should I be expecting to pay?

will this void the warranty?

yes anodizing will void your warranty.



You can get that green with Green AEN and a little yellow 3gl or fl yellow.

Or you could show the guy a pic of the gun and he can try to match it.

Eteks can be prone to pitting is something you should know. Will it doesn't happen often it does happen.

your looking at around 150-200. Price varies. You get what you pay for.

Those are the dye names.

You could just ask them to match the picture.



There is a pretty good example of pitting and what it looks like when you have a bad alloy.

Your going to have to shop around. The only anodizer that I can vouch for is Mario with fxanodizing because I've talked to him a bunch.
