Kinda wanted a general opinion, yay or nay, or maybe somewhere to do it semi-professionally in oregon, but: Went in my regular pawn shop today, looking around, found a rather unique piece that caught my eye; a Ruger P89 with the slide, and several parts an awesome cherry red, and the frame a perfect jet black. ...honestly it made me think of my GF, and she loved it, so i put down a payment for it haha. but the coloring process i couldn't quite pin down. I didn't appear to be annodized, or parkerized, but it wasn't a simple rattlecan job. (The lady there showed me another "custom" gun... poor thing, turned a $800 .45 to a $350 gun, looked like they used model paint and a brush...) It may of been a high-quality airbrushing, but each part was done through and through, and appeared to be fired with the new paint. (obviously) there's custom pieces out there, in some cases making the gun more valuable, but, what's your opinions on a "custom" gun?
