    My understanding.....you cannot remove the serial number. Period. Everything else is just dressing, as the serial is what ATF utilizes. Removing a serial is a felony.

    True, but I believe you can cerakote over a serial number as long as it shows through and is still legible.

    They look great, anodized or cerakoted?
    I'm not sure, but who's anodizing the burnt bronze (RAL 8000) color into receivers? I didn't think there was anyone who does this.

    Its been done, I dont like the dimension change though after stripping the black, and adding clear hard you can end up with .001"-.002" less material. Holes get bigger, bosses get smaller.

    @Oicani , as NoScoE30 said, it's been done that's why I was asking. And I don't know who does it as those who've done it are tight lipped about the anodizer. Another reason I asked. I thought you'd found that holy grail;-)

    The anodizer is a low volume hobby type guy. Probably doesnt want to deal with doing too many.

    If you call industrial anodize shops in your area, that hold an ffl and say you need 7075 aluminum that is type iii class ii anodized stripped, and re anodized type iii class i .0015"-.0025" you should end up with the tan anodizing.

    @RegularGuy461969 I see! That picture is of a batch Mike @ TSC did and I posted it in response to show that he's doing them. He doesn't anodize given those reasons mentioned above. I'm most likely going with TSC on this HK416C project as I want a Form 2 SBR, but no idea if I really want custom paint. After I mastered everything MP5 related shortly after I purchases my sear back in 2015, I got into ARs and here I am now working on my next build, HK416C.

    Cerakote if applied right is more durable than HA-III. If not applied right it won't be. I have a good friend that is a certified Cerakote applicator. The problem with Cerakote is there are so many applicators and differences in how they prep. The prep is probable the most important step. I believe this to be the major drawback with Cerakote. My applicator has perfected his process, but when he first started out some of his work wasn't as durable.

    I doubt its any more durable. The substrate is soft, and that is how you get scratches. The anodize is harder than cerakote. Also type iii class i anodize is the only way to properly "clone" the real guns.
