Shocker faded anno?

is there any chemical that would aid in fading the anno on a shockr, i like how the faded black looks, like grayish/gunmetal. If anyone has done this before, give me the best way to do it.

thanks,
]joe

Anything highly acidic will do it. Soaking it in things would be best, but it would be boring.....

yah just use it alot, fading it on purpose is retarted. and theres no story to tell behind it, if someone asked u how did the ano fade then u gotta say, o i was rubing it for like an hour straight and it came out like this. if u played with it and it faded then u can tel everyone ur a hardcore baller

You can get this strong oven cleaner stuff... but playing paintball is generally the way to go!

If you use chemicals to attempt to fade it, you'll probably end up harming the aluminum. We had a discussion about this in the anodizing forum.

Oh, I was referring to only some very light dunking. If you left the parts in there for a while or even enough time that the entirety of the ano would scrape off, there may be some issues (that kind of work takes experience).

you could use the sand paper, just use a low grit like a 1500 or higher, just like the guy above said

I can`t believe this is being discussed
Most people like someone said before me would like a story behind the marker.
"Had it for years"
"This has been by my side, never let me down and has been through hell and back"


Yours, " I sanded, rubbed, watched porno and stroked it instead of my unit"

I guess that`s a story but it`s not one I personally would share with my bros!!!

Just play paintball bro, it`ll fade.

Damn I just cant get mine to fade! I've played with it for 6 months now and the anno is still holding fine!! A few knicks yes, but the anno isnt fading off like SP anno is supposed too.....whats going on???







Oh wait, I shoot a proto.



-Honestly though the easiest way to fade down your shocker would be to put some real wear and tear on the gun....by playing....

you know?

Here is a secret tip from Dirt products,
once we recieve guns for anodizing we run them through
the dishwasher with regular cascade, and about 50% of guns
fade and 99% of the time the shockers fade.

so take it apart and stick it in the dish washer
