Default Anodizer suggestions?

I'm looking to get a couple (literally 2-3 parts) raw done in clear ano. Really simple stuff.

What are my options?

I know that I don't need to have the raw parts ano'ed, but I'm looking to get a consistent gloss silver look across all of my parts. My feedneck and asa are already gloss silver.

While on the topic, what's the story with mag valve anodizing? I saw that Scott cringed on a recent FB post where someone had their valve anodized.

Think it has more to do with either the pics of who it came from looked awful or a story of having to do it a few times OR just the simple fact that a reanno'd valve will have tolerance issues the first time its aired up.

I've used caustic customs on several projects, color matches, whole guns, he's top notch. I've also used Arc Anodizing and FX Anodizing. they do a lot of work in the community. There's also a guy who came onto the scene last year, Stained Works is his business name on FB. He's done some good work and people seem to like him.

I say go with caustic. His only issue may be backlog. Let me know if you want to see some pics of his work.

Thanks guys!
I just saw a post on FB of some recent work done by FX - clear and black parts. Looks solid.

I'll get in contact with him once I have all my parts.
