Was there blue/black Demons made?

I've been looking and looking, and I keep seeing blue with white, but haven't seen a single blue w/ black Demon. I'd really like to get a Demon, but honestly, right now, I'm having a hard time finding one I think has a nice looking color scheme.

So you are saying all the anodized guns i did for Vanguard wont be Warranted!

Besides im the one who wrote the Warranty Policy with Jason for Vanguard in 2009. Anodizing does not effect Any mechanical, electrical issues that these guns may already have from bad tolorances due to poor machining, you and i both know this Frank dont act like its something new because of Anodizing. The policy states modifications will void warranty, anodizing is not a modification.

Frank, are you telling me my marker is not covered by warranty now? It was when I bought it. It's custom anodized Purple and Blue. It was not done in the UK Factory, but it's clearly marked on the box "Factory Custom 1 of 1"

How do you propose you solve that little conundrum?

If I'm no longer covered by warranty, I'd like to return it to you for a full refund.

OP, to be helpful instead of hindering, this should not be a difficult thing to achieve. The Factory already uses Blue Ano and Black Ano. Logically speaking, there should be no problem getting those two colors on a single marker, and since they're stock colors, I wouldn't expect to be asked to pay anything additional either.

That will also maintain your factory warranty. You will need to contact the UK directly though since there is no anodizing capability in the US anymore. Hope that helps.

I think it is ridiculously absurd what frank said. Why does a custom anno void a warranty? Unless frank changes the warranty statute if it were me and my marker was to be voided of its warranty, I would sue... just saying.

We are looking at this closely but just so everyone knows, every other gun manufacturer states the same thing. After market anno VOIDS warranty. I can tell you that every marker that was done by Eric when he worked for Vanguard will keep it's factory warranty. The decision we are looking at, is do we stop that from this day forward or do we continue to allow this. I will have a answer for everyone within a week.

I hate to be the one to bring back a deceased thread, but did we ever find out if the warranty will be voided by a custom anno?

Yes, it will be, for anything done outside the Vanguard factory. Shootnpoo's work will be covered by warranty up to the serial numbers that were issued prior to the split from what I understand (because during that time, he was considered to be the US Factory). Anything after that, and not done by him, will not be covered.

At least this is the last I heard in discussing the issue with Vanguard UK.
