Why you should avoid Bomber Anodizing (Pics)

In October of 2014 Aaron Fraher proposed a Breast Cancer Awareness fundraiser project that involved custom anodizing a select number of MacDev Cyborg 6 markers with a BCA splash designed by Chris Hebiki Lim. A worthy cause and something I jumped on right away.

In total, three guns would be made. One for myself, one for Aaron Fraher and one for Robby Deyo. It would net approximately $1800 towards the BCA fund. Not bad for a small project. We had many generous donors. MacDev and Chris Hebiki Lim made it all possible.

After the guns arrived, Aaron broke them down piece by piece and sent them off to Bomber Anodizing. This would later prove to be the greatest blunder of our combined 45 years of paintball experience.

Dillon Moreash was initially the project lead over at Bomber Anodizing. All communications were conducted through him and Aaron. Promises were made, timelines expired, hope was lost, patience ran thin.

Months later with zero progress updates, I reached my limit. I needed answers. I directed my frustrations directly on the Bomber Anodizing Facebook wall. It was almost instantly removed and I was contacted by Matt Jurcin. He claimed to work at Bomber Anodizing but I had never heard of him. Matt Jurcin explained “I have taken over all customer interaction.” He further stated that “Dillon has since been removed from all customer dealings, because it’s not the first time” he had had issues with him dropping the ball on projects.

Matt Jurcin was completely out of the loop on the project. He even went as far as asking me what they were supposed to do to the guns. I was dumbfounded. They had the guns for months now and he didn’t even know what to do with them. I explained that I was promised the guns on Monday (March 23rd 2015) and if they weren’t delivered as promised I would fly to Denver personally with police escorts to recover my property. I was promised by Matt Jurcin himself that the guns would be done by Monday.

Monday came and went. Tuesday, Wednesday, so on and so forth. Excuses. Lies, Stupidity.

Towards the end of March, nearly 5 months after project inception, the guns were back in our hands.

TOTAL FAILURE.

I’ve seen a lot of anodizing in my paintball “career.” This was undoubtedly the worst I had yet to see. All three guns instantly began fading. Scratches all over. Fingerprints in the anno. They even missed spots on the gun. It’s as if Larry, Curly and Moe got the can of spray paint out and gave it a go. Just hilarious.
Back to Bomber Anodizing they went! I demanded they get help from someone who actually knows something about anodizing. Caustic Customs Anodizing to the rescue! If it wasn’t for his help… I’m not sure where this story would have gone.

I realize now that this story has gone on long enough so I will try to keep it short and to the point. On Matt and Dillon’s second attempt and anodizing carnage, they continued to miss deadlines. More excuses were given and I’ll just say that even if they had met all the deadlines, I cannot and will not recommend their work. A total failure of a “business.”

Here is the best part of the story. After the markers were anodized a second time, they were supposedly shipped back to Aaron via USPS. The tracking showed $50 of insurance and you guessed it… they never showed up. Awesome!

I spent hours on the phone with the Post Master of Denver. After a huge amount of effort, the Post Master and I came to the conclusion that the guns were never shipped. We were given false information. I spoke with Matt. I asked him if he was sure Dillon had shipped them. He assured me that he had done so. I wasn’t convinced. I knew something was awry.

One day short of my attorney filing suit against Bomber Anodizing, the guns were found. Matt broke into Dillon Moreash’s room and found all three markers. Not only did he find our markers, but other stolen markers as well.

Nearly one year later, we have our markers back. It was one hell of a process and frustrating is putting it lightly. Bomber Anodizing is a joke of a business and I implore you to avoid doing business with them at all costs. You may just never see your marker ever again.

Original Design...




What happened after them holding the guns hostage for 5 months. This fade was after less than a days play. It rubbed right off as if it were done with a marker.




What we got after almost a year...



Not even close to the original design.

How you "sat" so patiently for a year is beyond me. That's crazy. After the first deadline I would have taken a flight

Normally I would have handled it a lot sooner than I did. The truth is I was being patient because they were working on more than just my gun. Also because I had never intended on using this gun, just joined in on the cause to promote something I find to be worthy of my money.

I shouldn't have even have to ask for a refund. If they had handled it like professionals I wouldn't have posted this. It's on them.

Wow. I literally do better work than that in my garage (see below).



The original design is really not that tough, from an anodizing standpoint.

It's so God awful bad that I feel like there HAS to be more to this story.

I.... I don't even have the words. In NY, that can fall under the "Lemon Law," and possibly also constitute outright fraud; they'd be in some really big trouble. I'm so sorry for your trouble. I hope these clowns get what they deserve.

I'm sure i've kept a few people from doing business with them. That's my hope. No one deserves to go through this.

Thats strange. I used bomber for my GSL and it turned out great for me. However, i only dealt with Matt and had no dealings with Dillon.





Sad to hear that happened. Dont know what happened to them. Maybe they took on way more work than they could handle and it all went downhill.

Same, I only dealt with Matt. I do think there is a lot of truth in what the OP says about the Dillon character, which is why he's not longer a part of the team over there. I had Matt do a galaxy GSL as well, and it turned out ridiculously amazing.

I think there issue, even now, is communication. Matt is fantastic at his Ano job, but was hard to get a straight answer out of. I also felt like he forgot what he had told me about waiting lists, and Ano time, etc.

In the end, I had a beautiful gun that took a month longer than I expected, and took a little persistence on my part to get the information I wanted.

What I don't understand is how they would justify sending a crappy product back to a customer. The one thing I would say for Matt, he was a perfectionist. That sucks they would send you that back.
