Laser engraved and want re-anno. Possible?

Hey people, Long time listener first time poster! I just got a gun in a trade and the laser etching/engraving or whatever it is called looks like garbage. Wondering if I can get the gun re-anno'd or is it "jacked" forever? As you can see in the pics the laser is a "little" different on each side.

Im wondering if that was intential on the design.. I think they were going for that mirror, reflection effect in the first pic. In any instance you can anno over the design but the laser engraving will still be noticeable... your best bet is to have it polished off and reanno the whole gun.

Bead blasting is what they used to do for this. It was suppose to take everything off.

It's supposed to be the Arizona state flag or a derivative of it. So first it would need to be polished then anno'd unless I don't mind a "shadow" version of this design?

Wouldnt sand blasting pit the crap out of the aluminum? I have a sand blaster but have only used it on steel.

Do NOT Sand blast your gun. Sand blasting is very aggressive for aluminum. With some work the ghost image that is present after the old anodizing is removed can be taken off as well but most anodizers will require more money to do it.

Looking at that laser engraving I would say that it is not actually burnt into the aluminum so a ghost image is unlikely. Or at-least not something that would be a pain to remove. Now what I have seen with laser engraving is terrible pitting. I have only seen one that didn't pit and it was never actually used for play.

Here is an example of pitting. This marker had full gun laser engraving.

If you plan on getting it re-anodized please do not sand blast it. Not only is it way to aggressive, but being that you used it for steel the sand is most likely contaminated. With anodizing prep everything has to be dedicated to that metal.
