Anodizing Reviews for Tonsixer

6/0/0 (Positive/Neutral/Negative)

This thread is meant to be used for Brief reviews of Tonsixer. This thread is linked to the List of Anodizers and will be used for people to look at rateing and pictures from Tonsixer.

These rules must be followed
1. You must have had work done the anodizer in the title of the thread.
2. Give the anodizer a Positive, Neutral or Negative rating
3. Keep it brief, I don't want page long reviews. If you feel the need to express your opinions with the 2 page story feel free to make another thread.
4. Describe what you were having done
5. You must post a picture of the work

If all of these rules are not followed your post will be removed, so please make my job easier and keep everything following the guidelines above. I will track all of the positive, neutral and negative reviews and will update them once every couple of weeks.


1. I had my 06 nexus ego anodized by XYZ anodizing on February 31st, 2001.
2. Positive experience
3. Did a great job/exactly what I wanted/3 week turn around/ Communication was slow but not bad.
4. Had them do a pink, red, green and brown splash on the entire gun
5.Post a picture (this is a made up example so I don't have a picture)

1. I had my 2k+ sniper mid-block milled and anodized by the Tonsixers between Aug 17 and Oct 19, 2012.
2. Positive experience, would definitely do business again.
3. Overall they did an excellent job. Mid-block milling looked clean, fit and finish was very good for all parts. Pump arm was cut too short but that was only because they used the spec for "new" CCM pump kits instead of the old one I had (they didn't ask and I forgot to specify). It is currently being redone. Turn-around time was total 2 months, but the anodizing portion was only 3 weeks. Communication was ok - some PMs went unanswered or very slowly, but all communication was professional. Return packaging was good as well, no issues with damaged parts during transit.
4. Had them do a three color, gloss finish acidwash in purple, teal and turquoise, as shown in the pic below:

1 - I had my NYX Matrix anodized by Tonsixer Anodizing in March 2016

2 - Positive experience | 1000% recommended | Plan on doing business with again!

3 - Had some brief discussions prior to sending my parts in letting Mitchell know the scope of work on the parts. Sent the gun with a basic idea and a couple of sample images with some notes on each. I was thrilled with the end result. Communication was occasionally on the slow side (but I guess their username foreshadows that, ha!) but Mitchell was very friendly and easy to communicate with thoughtout. Cost/Shipping/Packaging and end result are all top notch!

4 - Asked for the gun to be anodized in a Battleship Grey and have a red blood splatter; additionally, the laser engraving a previous owner was to be removed. Delivered on all requests!

1) SLS marker sent to Tonsixers on March 29th, received back on April 22nd.
2) Positive experience, will get future work done again! Recommend them to anyone looking for a professional service!
3) Contacted Tonsixers and dealt with Mitchell. A pleasure to talk to, and communicated well. They got down exactly what I wanted. They had to convert dust to gloss for the copper brown parts, and hay gold for the dust parts. Only had a small blemish on one of the eye covers, but Mitchell informed me, and went out of his way to make it right.
4) Two colour anodize job. Had copper brown parts glossed, and dust parts hay gold. Four barrel backs done, as well as two tips. (Matching colour and gloss job).
