Redux Refinishing?

Hey guys! Long time, no post. Figured I'd chime in on something I've been toying about with lately. I'm messing with the idea of having my Redux refinished, either with a new anno, or something a little more special.

After about three years of searching, I found a place that's ready and able to do Aurora finishes, and has done work on paintball gear already. I sent pictures of the parts out today and I'm waiting to hear back on a price quote. If it's reasonable, what do you guys think?

It'll look something like this, though likely with a more blueish hue:


They also do a similar, though much darker finish that they call Nebula or something. Really cool looking. If it's too expensive, which I'm fully prepared to accept, I am thinking of having Caustic Customs do a nice unique ano. I've been watching his work on Facebook and that dude has some MAJOR talent. Anywho, what does the Redux crowd think? Is an Aurora Redux something to be frowned upon?

Not sure to be honest. I'm sure it'll be costly, but I only just sent out pictures this afternoon. I imagine it'll be a day or two for me to get a price quote, but I will post up what the estimate is when I get it.

It is something I always wanted to do, but if we're looking at thousands of dollars then I can promise it's not going to happen. We'll just have to wait and see right now. I was told that the number of parts, and size of the parts will affect price. Considering I have 12 total parts that need to be done, but they're all relatively small compared to what these guys usually do, I'm hoping it's not going to be REALLY high. And the fact that they've done some guns before gives me hope.

PVD coating is what makes it look like that. The cheapest place I found still cost $500 for a batch.

Yep, I'm hoping it'll be around that ballpark. The only place that got back to me about it probably about a year ago quoted me something like $3000 to do it. At that point, it was DEFINITELY not worth it.
