Check feedback.
Never ship first if doing a money/paypal/cashiers cheque transaction.
Sometimes you can do a third party escrow trade. You can find escrow services, or sometimes admins/moderators offer escrow services. If you don't know what escrow is google it.
Never accept the escrow services suggested by someone who has bad feedback. Chances are thier escrow service isn't legit.

The all time GOLDEN rule: If it's too good to be true, then it's a scam.

Trading would be cheaper, that's for sure. Something easier than trading is selling and buying... Sure trading would be great in a perfect world, but finding someone that is looking for the opposite of you is always hard.

IMHO the best way to do it is to re-anno... that way you can make sure that the parts match because the anno varies from one factory run to another.

Why might I ask would you do a single part? If you don't anno all you accents at the same time then the anno will vary... that's what I was getting at. It's just the *proper* way to do it.

yea I know it's not a single part but most annodizers that i've checked out only do a whole marker with a set number of single parts with it. I need a cheap but proffessional annodizer who can do a ram cap, and carbon fiber eye covers and part of the barrel. if someone has anything else that should be highlighted tell me. the feedneck will be bought in silver seperatly unless you think I should get the stock feedneck done to match and the trigger is already done. Another question i geuss i should ask is should i keep the black grip frame or put on a balck to silver fade frame?

You can strip the anno off of existing parts by yourself... I think they use oven cleaner.. make sure you wear gloves.

Maybe you wanna google that. But most annodizers will do multiple parts. I don't think you can anno carbon fibre because it isn't a metal. You could maybe plate it then anno it... but I am not sure if that would work either.
