    Where is a good place to have this done on a 1911? Local? I was looking at sending it to Springfield. I want a good tough finish for CC!

    Anyone know of anyone in Texas that does hard chroming?

    How about pistol engraving?

    I'm looking to have some custom work done and would love to have some face time with the artist but if not I'd probably send it off to customized creationz... There was someone on this site that had some work done by them and I've looked and their prices were pretty reasonable...

    I'm also looking for someone that does metal work... I'm looking to get a set of slim grips for my Mustang created out of aluminum... Just something I've been looking at doing...

    I contacted STI about a different finish (this is for my Ranger II). So, I will see what they say. If they have no options I will most likely go with SA custom shop. How does there armory coat hold up?

    I have sent a few guns to CCR Refinishing > http://www.ccrrefinishing.com/index.html.

    They do a fantastic job.

    What type of finish are you going for?

    Black, Nickel, another color?

    I have had my Colt frame done, HK slide done, Sig slide done and about to send my HK P7 their for the whole gun in a Nickel Plate.

    I just want a good tough finish that will hold up to when I carry it sometimes. I do not want shiney on this one.

    I've had one in OD for 4 years and it's held up great through some hard use. No chips or scratches, just a couple dull(er) spots from dragging across concrete and brush.

    It sucks ! I bought a TRP Operator a couple of years ago and the "armory" finish started to wear in a couple of months. Not horrid, but it should not have been wearing off at all in 2 months. I never carried the weapon.

    LOVE the gun , HATE the finish !
