Hard chrome can come in different ways. Most refinishing outfits will give you options. NP3 wears in such a way that wear marks will look like shiny...I don't know how else to describe it. Robar gives their NP3 finish a lifetime warranty against corrosion, peeling or flaking. Many will say that hard chrome does not wear, but it does. Every time someone says that on boards like TFL and THR, there's a member who shows his hard chromed 1911 with wear marks.win said:When people say that the np3 does not wear like the hard chrome do they mean that it wears off like blueing. Holstering puts thin spots in the finish or the finish comes off? After a while will the np3 need to be redone? I could see an advantage to np3 being self lubing. Is their a disadvantage to that?
Is the hard chrome reflectve? shiney?
thanks for the pictures
