Looking for someplace to get a lower anodized in the plattsburg area

Did a quick search for you on Google - A place in Plattsburg called "Plattsburgh Paintball" says they do custom "anodizing" - however couldnt find a phone # or address.

Word of caution though, if anyone (besides yourself of course) is working on your lower they should have an FFL, I know this is true with "gunsmithing" on a lower, so "refinishing" it might fall under the same category. Perhaps check with the gunshops out that way to see if they have any leads.

from the atf faq:

Is a license needed to engage in the business of engraving, customizing, refinishing or repairing firearms? [Back]

Yes. A person conducting such activities as a business is considered to be a gunsmith within the definition of a dealer. [27 CFR 178.11]

A FFL is not needed because i plan on handcarrying the lower there and watching the work being preformed. That way there is no transfer of ownership.

I would recommend sending your lower out to a place with experience in anodizing M16s. It has to be done very carefully to preserve the correct dimensions of the pin specs.

Take a look at this thread for some more info.

You need to strip the old anodize off ( This needs to be done by the plateing people also) before you can anodize it. You should also polish things a bit after it is stripped.

I "Second It" to send it down to Victor at US Anodizing. They are great people to work with. Turn around time is +/- a week.
