Does custom annodizing void the warranty?

I'm looking into trading my geo 3 for a GT. I'm just wondering if annoing the grip frame of a clone GT voids its warranty.

Not if you have SHOOTNPOO/Aggressive Sports do it. They have been granted the permission to annodize MacDev markers and keep the factory warranty.

Normally though it would void the warranty as with any other gun.

The Warranty is invalid if you are buying second hand .

I know.. It's a shame it was a really nice marker. He told me the marker is done by FX anodizing. If anyone from Macdev can help, that would be really awesome.

If I buy a Brand new Clone GT and take it to FX anodizing for a custom anno job... Would that void the warranty?

Yes it would. SHOOTNPOO is the only one that can anodize a gun and keep your warranty.

Not true entirely. Pooty's are covered as well. They get the bodies raw

good products and services get used by those in the know. I dont know why you are still looking at fx, have you seen the guns from aggressive?

I would only get mine done by aggressivesports.
If you going to spend the extra cash, you may as well get it done right.

I don't want to take anything away from Shootnpoo, but I've looked at guns from both, and both do amazing work. All things equal, I think anyone would be extremely happy with the finished product from either of them.

The fact that MD supports Shootnpoo definitely gives him the edge with MD guns (including my own, warranty or not). Any non-MD marker it would be a tough choice, just because I can drive to FX and drop my stuff off with him.

No need for the snippy response. Just stating the one Pooty sells are covered. I didnt mean to imply that you weren't the only one who could annodize and keep the warranty, just meant that there is more than one place to get them. Most people know Pooty doesn't anodize his stuff. You guys use raw bodies from MacDev.

I would personally buy a gun from Aggressive simply because they start from a raw body. Annodizing a raw body vs having a gun reannodized, it won't be of the same quality. I don't know why you would want to void a 2yr warranty for conveinance

I don't know too much about anodizing, but I can tell you that trading the geo for a clone is a good move.
