    Does anyone know of anywhere in the UK that can do acid wash anodizing? I've been looking for years for somewhere that does with no success.

    Nope - acid wash is a very specialised process and not readily available in the UK. The most you'll find here is straight colours, splash effect and sometimes fades. Usual option is to ship out stateside to get this kind of finish done. It's one of my favourite finishes for markers

    Check out this FB gallery from Tonsixer https://www.facebook.com/TonsixerAnodizing

    and this mag was annodised by Caustic Customs https://www.facebook.com/CausticCustoms

    Darn! I knew it! I'm surprised no one has branched out into acid washes, they really do look great. Single colours are ok as are fades but acid washesn now we're talking! Looks like my Mag will be going to the U.S then....

    That is some cool gun-porn. But this is really no thread for the brain box...
