Thanks,

Well 7075 is not the most forgiving when anodizing and wanting to color it.
So black is this time something like Fifty Shades of Gunmetal.

Can't win every time, bath heated up too much and I forgot the part for too long in the acid. One of the alu wires was already cut from being too long in.
So not enough current and oxide layer was too small.
But not so bad I kind of like it.

Maybe not what you intended; but I personally think it looks better with that gunmetal finish-if it came out perfectly black, it'd be monotone-now it just pops between the action and grips...
Me likey!  :D

Wow!  Looks really good.  I was wondering why not 6061.  Is it a strength issue or milling issue?

I really like the color you got there! On purpose or accidental, it really has a unique coolness to it.

And thanks for sharing it with us.

Thanks guys for your kind words.

7075 T6 is the go to material on what I usually make and that is what I have in stock. Customer work is mostly done out of this and it's just about the toughest alloy readily available so why not use it on gun parts too.

One more picture with better lighting

Looks better in natural light, I actually like the color now that I saw it outside.

Well it looked real nice in your first picture, but in natural light it's awesome!!! Congrats and keep up your cool work Marko :D.

BTW, that alu piece underneath the rear stock, is it a folding handle for BR/ prone shooting?
