    Possible to anno/powdercoat X-Valve?

    So, I have a black x-valve in an all-dust-black mag. It looks like garbage. Any way to get the x-valve redone in dust?

    Sure. Take the valve apart so that only the aluminum parts remain. Then have those sent to someone who annodizes aluminum.
    Except for the Automag in front, its usually the man behind the equipment that counts.

    Remember to remove the Z pin on the valve.

    send it to someone who is proficient in annoing x-valves.

    if the anno is not done right it will be scrap.

    Or send it to someone who knows what they are doing and leave the z pin.
    If I need to drill out the pin they are not anoing my valve

    Yeah...drilling out that pin is not something someone as amateurish as myself with power tools should be attempting :P

    Besides, I'd NEVER be able to get the thing back together. Dangit!
