When did MAX Anodizing close?!

ACK, ok maybe I'm way behind the times but when did MAX close?!?!?!

Anyone know of another good custom shop other than AnoTech of course.

That was a while ago. They have once again closed do to the new owner either firing all the workers or all the workers quiting on him, and has taken on a regualar job to pay the bill while trying to finished the markers that are still there (my custom Matrix being one of them )

To say the least some people have been horribly screwed because of this (myself being one of them) and no one can seem to get in contact with them (several e-mails and a phone call I have made, all yet to be answered )

They didn't "close" per se, they just quit taking on new work until they get caught up with the old work.

Once they get caught up, they will begin to take more work again.

Yeah well My gun is one of the "old work" guns and it was supposed to ship out 2 weeks ago tomorrow. Well now its been 7 weeks since I sent it in......Im not happy to say the least.

We'll see if Max can recover from all the bad "press" thay have been getting latly (a screwed up proto ano, a over polished custom gun, and now closed down with pwoplw guns there and no way to contact them. Max=bad company)

"Over" polished gun?

Did they polish away the tolerances or something because I can't see anything wrong with some super gloss ano.

Yes, polishing takes off metal, the more you polish the more metal that gets taken off. The more metal that gets taken off the more screwed up the tolerances get.

I know this but they're not supposed to even touch the internals in the first place with a polisher unless its a raw gun in the first place.

It was a raw gun....it was a custom made gun. Were talking things that screwed in even didnt fit right any more. There is a thread on it over in the custom marker forum. its called "My adventures with max" (or something close to that)

Yeah, I've seen Brad's custom gun when they got it back from anno and it was not what it use to be before they sent it off. I saw it in it's raw form and all the parts fit perfectly as Brad said. After seeing it back from anno, the barrel doesnt align right, overbuffering, and a few places where the color wasnt consistent.

Max did great work, hopefully they will reopen back up and have caught up on their work and provide the type of anno they have done in the past.

Yeah my trix is still there. We are now on week #7 of it being at MAX. I would love to have him send my gun back to me but I cant get a hold of any one. E-mails, phone calls, none have been answered in the last week and a half

Even if MAX doesn open up again I will not send any of my guns there and I will be an advacate for the Anti-MAX community which continuns to grow. This whole situation has gotten me very pissed. MAX is by far the worst Ano copany ever
