Hard coating can be done at home(and that is the plan), it just isn't as easy as standard anodizing. As for right now I have been way to busy to worry about finishing. Work takes up 16 hours of my day plus I have some other side projects rolling. Will post finished product when I can get to it.

Thanks! That sounds like the way to go - and pretty cheap too.

From what I can tell, Gun-Kote is not as hard as anodizing, even the type II home brew stuff, but it may be hard enough. I'm not sure how much alodine treatment before Gun-Kote improves things, but that is my fall back plan if I can't get a local shop to type III anodize for me.

Six months later and I finally have a final product. This isn't the only one, but it is the first. The engraving was done on equipment owned by a friend and the type 3 anodizing was done by another friend. Sorry I can't offer any referrals but they aren't offering the service to the public. Thanks to all that helped make it happen.

As an aside, magwells can be cut with a metal shaper, a machine considered obsolete in modern machining and therefore are a dime a dozen for fairly cheap.

I believe (I've heard) that dropping off a finished lower at an anodizer actually constitutes the transferring of a lower, requiring a registration/paperwork or it's a crime. Just an FYI fellers...

There are multiple legal ways to do this...

-Anodizing company is also an FFL (for drop off service)

-You stay at the location it is being anodized until it is finished.

-You do it yourself.
