Pink and Black Karnivor!!!!

What's up guys I just recently got into anodizing and I thought what better gun to anodize than a karnivor. with the beautiful two toned anno I knew the results would be exciting. I decided to go with a black and pink combo. I may be getting rid of the gun soon so be ready if your interested. Also I will be anodizing the feedneck as well once I figure out a safe way to get it off. I am also thinking of anodizing for customers and I was wondering what kind of interest there is out there. These were just quick photos of the gun taken off of my cheap phone so ignore the poor pictures. Let me know what you guys think. Thank you!

You have to heat the threads of the feedneck with a heat gun. Then wrap a strapwrench around it and twist.

I am afraid if I try to pry it off that way it will break the ears I have tried to heat it but I am unsure of how hot to get it if I get it too hot it will melt my strap wrench.

doesn't need to be too hot, just enough to soften the thread compound and turn with a strap wrench (don't heat it with the strap on it). I would keep the collar on when doing it.

I never took it off I stripped the gun with the feedneck on hence the bare aluminum but it is sealed so it will not except dye I can't strip it to anodize it without it being off or I may accidentally strip the body slightly and that would be tacky so I need it to come off heating it hasn't gotten it off yet I am just going to keep trying.

the silver part screws off, take the set screws out, they didn't put thread sealant on them sometimes, but there is an o-ring.

yea, the piece that the collar goes over comes off. held in by the set screws and a fat o-ring. ive read they annodized the other part of the feedneck while its already pressed in.

boiling? Yea I haven't done that yet... I was trying to remove the feedneck and the entire press-fit part twisted. Panicked a bit, broke a strap wrench... managed to get it back to centred with another one, but that feedneck is staying on. (****ing twistlocks...)

Also managed to put a couple marks in the anno with my second strapwrench.

****. but yea, disassembling now.
