    Tron did a flat black powder coat for my Blaser. Sure looks good.

    Matt is correct. We were the first to offer powder coat finishes in your choice of colors on all of our recoil systems and pad adjusters. Thanks!!

    Do a search for powder coating in your local yellow pages. If you can coordinate with them when they do a run of the color and finish you desire, it should be extremely reasonable to have done.

    Alternately, if you have access to an airbrush, you can get some duracoat, and it will get you to the same point.

    Ian (skeet_man) is correct and no matter who grinds your plates, you can always find someone to powder coat at a reasonable price. While some may consider themselves Avant garde with this subject matter, it's actually very easy, cheap to do and has been around for decades.

    If it is aluminium, you can do a poor man's dark finish. Experiment with some aluminium first. Let it soak in a bath of lye...the reaction will turn the surface a hard black; kinda a dull hot rod primer black.

    Thanks Bob, I learned that little trick years ago working in aluminium shed fabrication (summer job) and by error trying to "fix" some waffle iron plates...plates ruined, but they had a nice finish!

    Water and mild vinegar wash will neutralize any lye.
