What are the cons of annodizing?

I have money for anno, I just want to make sure that I will get a working gun in return. Will things fit back together as they should? Any other things that can happen?

well as long as you pick a quality anodizer nothing bad will happen, if you dont pick a good one.

parts not matching color wise
threads being eaten away
in general bores rotten away (bolt/barrel/ ect)
oring groves eaten away
parts being melted
parts not being returned

Nearly all manufacturers have rules against anodizing in their warranty information. This is understandable when you consider the risk that parts could be anodized improperly. So rather than fight a grey area, most companies will just state that any anodizing will void your warranty.

Accidents do happen, but as long as you go with a highly reputable company, your marker should be fine. It is important to note that tolerances will be effected, although it will likely go unnoticed. This is something to consider, especially when anodizing a barrel kit that does not use an internal sleeve system. When anodized, barrel backs and sleeves will not be the exact same size - but if done correctly, they will still be uniform.

Ive anodized probably about 200 guns. In all that time I only had 1 part fail. I dont know why there was a flaw in the metal or what happened it just fried it. Unfortunately it was a vapor body which happened to cost 300 dollars to replace.

If its my fault I replace the gun as i said Ive only had to replace 1 part out of probably 3000
