I wish I could find someone that could refinish AR recievers the dull grey color, Like early M16's and Sp-1's. I'm talking about re-anodizing, not Moly sprayed on stuff.

I believe this came up on the board a while ago. I would call Colt and ask if they would refinish the weapon for you.

you might wanna check with DPMS. i seem to remember them having an option for Hartford Horsey gray when you get them to re-anodize. ($35) other anodizing houses run ~$125 for a variety of colors. scott out

I wrote DPMS and this is the reply: " . . .We can hardcoat anodize for $35.00, and teflon for an additional $30.00. We can only guarantee a deep black with both processes, however. Thanks, Jared (e-sales)...."

Arizona Response Systems 5501 North 7th Avenue Phoenix, Arizona 85013-1755 phone 623-873-1410 METACOL III is the best firearm coating available and has made all other coatings obsolete. METACOL III is a bonded, solid-film lubricant. Unlike paint, it will never chip, peel, bubble, or crack and is thin enough (.0003" to .0007") to coat the most delicate internal components The dark gray is a perfect match for Colt-style gray anodizing (AR-15, SP-1, AR-10).

i have a couple of StG58's done in MetaCol III Satin Black by ARS. it is a sprayed and baked on coating and appears smooth as all teflon/moly coatings. with metal to metal contact/scraping, it does chip and peel. ARS warrantees the work for life so you can get it redone if you feel it's not looking good enough anymore. the color may match but will not, upon close examination, look (in texture) like original Colt's gray anodizing (painted surface vs. anodizing pores). if you get both upper and lower receivers done to match, then there is no problem with cosmetics. scott out

I'm not interested in any of the spray on & heat 'em up moly finish's. I'm interested in re-anodizing Colt Grey.

here's the shop that Kurt Wala of KKF recommends: [url]http://www.checkmatecustom.com/Default.htm[/url] you can contact Colt but expect 9mos to a year wait w/o your rifle. scott out

last time I called colt, they told me they only do it in black now, no colt grey. All the companies out there I know of are only doing the moly type stuff.
