I was thinking about Gun Koting my 1911, then I thought to myself why not go with chroming??



I am just wondering if anyone here knows of a reputable firearm chroming company?? I am wanting to do the darker chrome on the slide then I will just Gun kote the frame etc.



What does something like this run? I was told anywhere from $70-$200 depending on how much chroming I wanted done. I just want the slide done.



If anyone has any info or leads I would greatley appreciate it!



Thanks you all for your time, I tend to take alot of it up.....lol

Two of the most popular shops that hard chrome pistols are http://www.fordsguns.com/ and http://www.trippresearch.com/. I know a guy who has had several P7s refinished and he said he will only deal with Ford's from now on since they did better work in his opinion.



But there's always another option. You can get NP3 from Robar or the teflon nickel that Dan and BoomBoom can get you. This finish is darker than hard chrome and I personally like it a lot better. Here's some shots of my USP that I just got back from Robar last week:











And here's some other random shots I've picked up:

















In this last shot, the Glock is hard chromed and the 1911 is NP3'd:





Excuse me, I guess I got a little carried away with the pics. I love the NP3/teflon nickel.

Awesome stuff Chooch.

Thanks for sharing. I'm seriously considering Teflon Nickel for my M&P compact. I don't usually refinish just for the sake of refinishing; but I think it would be nice.

How much is the NP3 coating? Does it require baking?



How much did they charge you for your slide?? Man Looks really nice buddy! I have made my mind up, I will do 1 of 2 of these options.....lol Very nice chooch!!!

I don't know what Dan or BoomBoom charge with their teflon nickel connection but Robar charged me $150 to do the complete slide, barrel, and internals.



NP3 is supposed to be self-lubricating, guaranteed for life, and much easier to clean.



For everything you ever wanted to know about NP3, but were afraid to ask, click >>here<<.


Right on chooch. I will read up on it. I noticed there not selling it though....lol Is this something I can buy, or must I have someone get it or do it for me??



Thanks again brother
