So guide me in the right direction here. If I wanted my AR upper and lower receivers to be FDE, how would I go about doing that?

You can Duracoat it. If you order a Upper/lower combo from most companies you could order it plain alumium color. Then you can have it anodized any color you want. MegaMachineShop advised me against re-anodizing an existing part because the old anodizing would have to come off first. That'll take off some material in places that have tight tolorances.

Yep, I get that. Some kind of coating will be required whether powder coat, paint, or something similar.

Any calgunners offer this service?

If you have money, you can send it to US Anodizing, seems to have the best reputation.

Technique does, but only for non-FFL parts.

I believe he's working on that though.

I'm pretty sure Tech has a FFL, now.

There is another Calgunner that uses Cerakote, which is better than Duracote. Can't remember his user name. I do remember his website address, though.

I'm in NorCal, and I have an FFL so if the other guys don't work out give me a call or send me an email and I will get you a quote. I use cerakote, which I recommend for what you are wanting.

I was just about to recommend Todd. I had a frame and receiver done by him, and they turned out great.
