    1911 refinishing

    I'm looking for a shop that does hard chrome finsihing, I'm thinking of Tripp Research but would like to have some feedback from others before comitting to any particular smith, I've read that hard chroming is a rather difficult process and wouldn't want my series 70 Combat Commander getting...less than I paid for. Any replies will be greatly appreciated.

    When it comes to hard chrome, THE place to go is Tripp Research. Virgil does outstanding work! You will not be disappointed.

    I sure love the hard chrome Tripp did for me. It was under 2 weeks door to door for my XD slide.
