Re-anodizing a Pre 2k cocker body questions

I have been searching for a specific Splash anodizing pattern for a Cocker for a while now. It has been suggested that I take a cocker body and have it splashed anodized.
If I were to do this with a Pre 2K body, what kinds of issues would I expect?

How much tolerance will I lose?

What bodies should I avoid?

Which bodies are best for anodizing?

Who is best at reproducing the mid to late 90s splash ano patterns?

Please let me know.

Most humbly,

Smiley Burke

Tolerances will be fine on a cocker after an anno or two, there's no "active" orings in a cocker, all are basically static ones, and the bolt ones are kinda eh, not quite as important as say a rammer oring on a timmy or something.

If I was going with a PRe 2k body, what body - Sniper 1 - to something from 1999 - which body would be best for reano?

Just an FYI, I want to build a pump out of it.

I suppose pre98 bodies would be best for reanodizing. They had more of a matte finish. The 98-99 bodies had a dust finish which the anodizer would have to polish if you wanted a gloss finish. A pre98 body would just clean up a lot quicker/easier. But some anodizers will give you a break for stuff like that and some don't care. Cause pre98 bodies also use a smaller valve spring and have a smaller valve chamber. So a spring kit will be much harder to find and it will run at a higher pressure.

No matter what, make sure you get a non-stock vertical ASA reanodized with the gun. The stock ASAs of the time were made from a different grade of aluminum that doesn't hold anodizing that well. There are a bunch of nice KAPP ones on eBay for less than $10 new.
