I just got the sample from the new anodizing company in today. They are a nice gloss level though not as glossy as super black powder coat but I just do not think I can find anything like that in anodizing. However they do have a nice gloss level (the pic really doesn't do it justice) and it is a nice deep black color and not at all purple like some black anodizing I have seen (under fluorescent lighting).
below are pics of the saber. The parts are not aligned in this pic because the silver pieces do not belong to the grenade and gear section (I didnt see the need in digging through all the pieces to get the correct silver parts just for pics).
I am also including the chassis pictures. It will allow access to the SD
card by taking the pommel off. The kill key will also be under the pommel.
I am pleased with the Anodizing company and will be sending them the rest of the pieces. They originally told me it was a two week turn around so hopefully I can have these all back and ready for installs sometime in November.
