Please visit our Facebook or Instagram pages for lots of pictures and videos. Every single job we have ever done will be posted there. Pooty Paintball and anodizing will be the search name
Each Part is priced alone. If your regulator comes apart in 2 parts, It’s 2 parts. Every part must be racked alone and not attached to anything else.
All these finishes will need a gloss finish to start with. The below pricing includes polishing of your parts. If your parts have damage now, you will still have damage to them after. Polishing of your parts is done to remove your dust finish or clean up your gloss finish. In most cases small marks and damage will go away from polishing. But polishing can only do so much. Sanding down of the metal before polishing will need to be done to the metal at a extra cost if you request us to fix that damage.
We have a $300 minimum charge for any work.

WHAT CAN BE COATED
Aluminum for now. Steel we are working on. We can work with anodized parts and raw parts. If your parts are powder coated, painted or coated with anything besides anodizing we may not be able to strip that off.
Estimated turnaround time will be based on workload. A clearer estimated time can be provided once you notify us that you are ready to ship your gun/parts to us. Update on your project cannot be provided until your turnaround time nears. There is NO RUSH work as we would like to provide you with the best possible outcome. Average turn around time is 6-8 weeks. But give yourself more time if things run longer.
If you will be taking your gun apart, we will need:
- All internal parts removed from your gun/parts; Screws, o-rings, plastics, anything!
- One picture of all your parts fully stripped down and not attached to any other part.
- Trigger bearings are the only parts you may leave alone if you cannot punch them out.
- Damage to magnets is to be expected due to the multi-stage process. We can silicone over magnets or just pull them out if they can be. Magnets can be replaced if they are missing or damaged after the finishing process is complete.
If you need us to take your gun apart
- Email over what gun you have or a picture. Some guns are cheaper to take apart then others. We don't take apart some guns.
If you are in the USA, priority mail return is free for guns. Small parts will ship first class mail. If you are out of the USA, we will send you return shipping options and cost. You can pay this once it is boxed up and ready to be shipped back. We will then provide you with tracking information via email and your gun/parts will be shipped out the following day. We don't ship with a signature required. If you need one, you will need to request this.
GENERAL INFORMATION - MUST READ!
All the finishes in this section are a multi-stage process. It is not anodizing but more of a platting put on the metal. Think of it as a colorful Chrome. All these finishes will require special care, like chrome plated rims or a chrome car bumper. Your parts life span will depend on your care. Taking care of your finish is essential in maintaining its integrity and is your responsibility.
The Aurora finish has a multicolor rainbow effect, with a unique and incomparable finish. Expect to see blues and purples as the main coloring and aspects of other shades of colors. However, due to the process, the color outcome of your gun/parts will vary. We cannot guarantee certain color outcomes. You will see the Aurora finish color shift according to the light. Like chrome, the Aurora finish can chip with hard impacts. Consistent care is key! We have seen 35 year old Aurora coated parts still looking great.
24 Karat gold is a Nickel finish that has a real 24 karat real gold layer applied on top of the nickel base finish.
We have yet to see threading or fitment issues. Attention is paid during each step of the process, making sure that your gun/parts will work as they should.
All finishes requires a multi-stage process and minor flaws are to be expected, such as markings from the racking process. We will do our best to rack parts on less visible areas. However, some parts require certain racking placement and this we cannot help. Your finish will never be as predictable or perfect as anodizing, but once you see the finish in person...it is unreal!
--- Note ---
Special care should be taken in order to maintain the finish. The surface should only be cleaned with a damp micro fiber cloth and mild soap and water. Do not submerge in water as damage to electronics could occur. All rubber grips and/or covers, eye covers, levers or any device that can trap paint or debris needs to be removed and cleaned thoroughly. Do not leave any kind of dirt, paint, oil, grease or debris on marker as this can severely affect the finish.
We take no responsibility for damage that has been done to your finish once it leaves our hands. It is your liability to make sure you keep your finish always clean, dry and safe. Storing your parts with anything left on the finish can result in damage.
If you play hard and expect your finish to see abuse – This is not for you.
