baking lasering in home oven

Has any one ever baked the lasering on their gun in a home oven.
Heard it changes the lasering to a brownish color

It won't change the lasering. It might change the color of the ano. Not sure if it leaves the oven safe, or makes it unsafe for food use.

Search "Baking" here in Voided Warranty and the Anodizing sub-forum. Its been done before.

Don't bake your gun. Ever. For any reason.

If you do decide to do it any way post here with pictures when the gun doesn't work.

The aluminum isn't going to deform and the ano is still there, just a different color. You do realize that you only bake the bare body, not the internals, right? I've never seen a gun not work from a baked ano, they look like crap sometimes but they still work.

Yes I understand that, and I have seen a gun not work after baking. It was a Geo 1(when they were still new).

Baking also tends to anneal the aluminum, which removes any heat-treating and makes the metal softer. Baking can also warp parts, either from leftover machining stresses in the part, or from uneven heating/cooling during the baking.

Personally, I wouldn't recommend doing it, but as long as you accept the not-trivial possibility of ruining or at least damaging the marker, who am I to say no.

Oh, and baking don't affect lasering. The laser basically burns off the thin layer of anodizing, or at least just the dye layer, leaving the bare or nearly bare aluminum underneath.

Baking simply heats the part until the dye in the anodizing breaks down, or even starts to scorch, which changes the color. In the places there's no dye- as in the lasered areas- there's nothing to change color during baking.
