Possible to remove lasering? And dangers in re-anodizing?

I had my Alias done a couple of years ago and i regret it so much, the gun did not come out anything like i wanted to at all. and the lasering was not even lined up on the ram sleeve, nor the reg. I was so unsatisfied with the final product that i just didn't even bother speaking to the company because originally it took them 5-6 months to get the gun done and out to me, all while having minimal communication with me. anyways bottom line is, is it possible to remove lasering? and would it damage the body of my gun if i get it anodized again?

Laser engraving can have two issues.

A- If it is burnt through the anodizing and into the metal like the commercial stuff it is hard to remove.

B- It can pit quite badly because the laser engraving basically burns a path way right to the metal. This can hold all kinds of corrosives and cause pitting.

I have done 3 markers now with full marker laser engraving. 2 pitted severely and only one didn't. I believe the one that didn't was never really played with.

I mean would there be anyway of me myself being able to tell if it would pit? Im just getting back into the sport and i have my NT from 2010 but every now and then i still wanna play with my alias cause. I put so much work into that gun and so much money i hate that I'm not able to play with it just cause I'm so embarrassed of the quality of the lasering.

Not really. If you actually see pitting it is going to pit badly. Pitting will look be darker spots that seem to grow grown on the part like a vine. Very small.

If it has been cared for well and hasn't been played with a bunch you might be ok. Salt water can really be an issue as well as some paints seem to be corrosive.

There is really no way to know for sure until it is stripped though.
