I have a stripped AR receiver that's old, scratched, marred, etc., and wanted to have it chemically stripped and re-anodized. Does anyone have a firearm friendly source to have this done in SoCal?

Chemically stripping the old ano will most likely change the tolerances of the lower. Best bet is to Molly Resin the lower to match the upper. They may be able to strip after masking but Ive always been told it will change the dimension significantly.

Just looked at the prices for the anodizer above. By their price sheet your looking at $230 without masking charges. Unless that lower has significant meaning to you, you would save a ton of cash by just buying a new one.

Bummer, I know a guy near me who anodizes, but it is quite a ways from LA (about 2 hours.)

$25 per piece :)
He is doing two lowers for me right now that started life as 80%ers

Someone's only charging $25 for Type III anodizing?

If I'm not mistaken, you lose .0001-.0030, depending on the original build-up.

Not opposed to shipping and allowing someone to "borrow" my stripped lower.
