    Anyone know a good gunsmith for anodizing an alloy receiver?

    I'm working on restoring a gun that has an alloy receiver and it has a finish that looks like a baked on flat black finish.

    I'd like to have it anodized in dark blue or red.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Mike,

    If you want to stick with the satin finish, I could teflon coat it almost any color you want.

    Here are some color samples....(copy and paste into your address bar)

    Black Cote Inc. is a small company is located about a hour from me that did a rifle receiver for me a few months ago. Very nice work, good color selection and the cost was quite reasonable.
