Refinishing Services Information


Moly Resin

For those of you that would like the thermal cure Moly Resin finish on your firearm parts but do not have the desire, time or space to do the work yourself, we offer that service on a limited basis. We offer refinishing services primarily for the AR-15 and M-16 rifle parts to match original Colt colors, but can do some other projects also.

Grayish-Black Colt Flat matches early XM-16, M16-A1 and AR-15 model SP1 rifle parts. Black SOCOM Colt Flat matches later M16-A2 and AR-15 rifles and is the current production color for most AR-15 parts manufacturers.

We can also refinish your AR-15/M16 parts in other colors. We do not rfinish polymer or plastic parts such as polymer forearms, stocks, pistol grips, etc. When you send the parts of your project to us, please just send metal parts. We are a parts refinisher rather than taking in complete assembled firearms.

Scheduling your Project:

Please schedule your project with us in advance. Contact us at with your inquiry. Firearms should be sent to us disassembled into the parts you wish refinished. Our goal is to provide quality refinishing at a reasonable price. Generally, turnaround is about 10 to 14 days from receipt of project. We don’t offer any custom color mixes as we leave the color mixing experimentation to our customers.


Please don’t ship a receiver or frame that does not have a serial number and manufacturer’s name on it.

Firearms and parts may be shipped directly to us for refinishing since we are a licensed firearms manufacturer. You do not need to have a local firearms dealer ship for you unless you prefer. Any firearms parts that include a receiver or frame must be marked with a serial number and manufacturer’s name and address and this includes 80% receivers that are completed. When shipping firearm parts please include instructions and color selection in the package along with name and return information. You may send funds with your firearm or we can use PayPal. When firearms parts are being returned that include a firearm receiver frame, BATF requires that a signature is obtained from an adult at the location we ship to. Parts other than receivers, we generally ship without a signature required. However, a signature helps prevent UPS from leaving your package on your porch.

We return ship using UPS ground and your package is insured at the standard UPS default amount of $100. If no instructions for insurance are included in your package and you do not provide insurance funds, then your package will be insured for $100. You insuring your project for its replacement value is your responsibility and for your protection should your package be lost or damaged.

The ship to address is:

John Norrell, Inc.
13529 Saddle Hill Drive
Little Rock, AR 72212

Class III –NFA Firearms

In regard to NFA parts and suppressors and other Class III firearms, no ATF form 5’s are required by BATF to ship Class III firearms for repair/refinishing to a licensed manufacturer; however, please attach a copy of your existing ATF form showing that the firearm is registered in your name.


Our goal is to offer quality refinishing at reasonable prices and turnaround time. In order to do so, we require that firearms be disassembled and shipped without the stock, forearm or plastic polymer parts, tritium sights, etc. This keeps our time to a minimum and lets us focus on the refinishing aspect of your project. Parts will be individually wrapped to protect each part when returned.

80% Receivers – We are required to log into our ATF books all firearm receivers we receive for refinishing. While we fully understand the various issues involved with individuals completing 80% receivers for their personal use. Please don’t ship any completed 80% receivers that are not marked with serial number and manufacturer’s name and address.
