Anno choices

I have been seeing a semigloss offered on new guns at the store. Is this a new option for anyone that is ordering gun? Also, is there a side-by-side of gloss, semi-, and matte? Lastly, I see an anno described as "tumbled." Is that a new choice, or is that the semigloss?
Thanks

The finish is actually a vibratory finish is quite different style of finishing metal parts.
these are vibratory machines that are used today.

It leaves a really nice satin smooth finish unlike polishing.

It will remove light machine marks. We still have to do some hand finishing but not as time consuming and expensive as polishing.

Polishing is one of the reasons for the long wait on getting guns out the door.

Vibratory won't replace polishing but it's a very nice alternative.

Semi Gloss Finish

The New Semi Gloss Finish on the marker looks nice, I like it.
I would also like to see a large format picture of three markers with the three finishes side by side by side. Preferably all the same color to get an appreciation for the difference(s).
I've seen that type of vibratory machine being used on the TV show "How It's Made"

Something I haven't seen before... is the Style of Regulator on the J6 Style S6 Marker that is on your web site. Is that new?

We made an extremely limit run of those a while back and we have so few of them that we never put them in the store.

I don't have any markers on hand but here are some sizers.

What kind of media are you using for your semi gloss finish? Just an impregnated walnut or cob with rogue? Any steps prior to that?

I run a pyramid media after milling to get all the mill marks out and then go into the walnut with rogue mix, but it takes days in there before I get a nice reflective finish on there.

Appreciate any insight there!

The pic of the sizers is helpful in visualizing the "look" of the finish.
Thanks

We are using plastic V-Cut cylinder 1/2 X 5/8 fine finish.

I've never tried that kind of media, and I would never have guessed that large of a size. I thought it would be too big to get in smaller spots, but I guess you also don't have to dig any out of little holes. Thanks for sharing.

Wow, wouldnt have thought of that either. How long are you running your parts in that? Have you guys tried any other media such as porcelain balls or stainless shot? Thanks for sharing. I am not trying to pry for information, only compare to some of the tumbling I have done. Been interested in finding ways to save time on the manual buffing wheel, lol.

Agreed! Are you doing any tumbling prior to anodizing? Curious what you're using as well and the results you're getting.

Sorry for the thread jack here, but this is what my parts look like after 3 days in the tumbler... Just want to find a way to get them even shinier if possible. Hoping we can all learn from this.
