    Congrats! I have been hard chroming my pistols for years and have had nothing but good luck with it. My first IPSC full house race gun was hard chromed and i put well over 100k rounds through it with no problems......

    I have a question. Is the hard chrome a finish applied over the existing gun, or is it just the finish stripped and the steel underneath polished? What about wear? Does it wear off?

    I like it but you've got to get some nicer grips to set off the hard chrome.
    Thanks,
