    Arrow SIG 220 Refinishing

    My brother's department is in the process of changing their sidearms. The Sheriff is still considering the idea, but is considering giving the deputies the opportunity to buy their service pistols (Sig 220's) for only $300.00.

    Now if The Sheriff decides to go this route my brother said he will buy his pistol in a heartbeat. The only problem is the finish really needs to be fixed up. I know nothing about refinishing of pistols, and I'm not sure my brother knows exactly how to go about re-finishing a pistol.

    So, my question is, how has ever refinished their pistols? Who are good people to trust for refinishing? What would be his options for a new finish? How much would it cost?

    Thank you in advance.

    Check out via Google:

    Roabar
    Novak
    Tripp Research
    Evolution Gunworks

    That's the first four to come to mind, when it comes to refinishing it depends on what he wants done on where to go. If you want hard chrome applied, Tripp reseaerch is the way to go. If he wants it bead blasted stainless, bluing, parkerized there are many different places to go, probably some local as well.

    Robar has some very nice finishes ranging from the matte colors to NP3 which is reportedly a very good finsih.

    You could do it yourself using DuraCoat.
    I did a 226 and it came out good.
    Only costs around 20.00 bucks.

    I'd go with hard chrome

    As previously mentioned, you could have the gun hard chromed. This is a finish resembling matte stainless steel that is virtually indestructible. Tripp Research in Texas does this, as do a number of other vendors. I have 2 Glocks with hard chrome slides and they show no scratches or wear after years of use. Here is my Glock 23:

    If he could get his SIG for $300 then he should send it off to Tripp for Chrome.
    He would still be way out in front & the finish is indestructible and they do a magnificent job.
    They don't grind them up.
    I used to do pro refinishing so when I say they do a great job - then they are damn good at what they do!

    Another vote for TRIPP, have used a 220 in 38 super that was done by them, and it was great. The other choice for me would be BIRDSONG and then ROBAR

    So far so good. I coated in the matt black, its hard to tell that it was even coated. I got it for 299$ and it had a few nicks on the finsh of the frame so I coated it. I figured what the heck. So far, Im happy with it.

    Very Cool!

    One of my older working guns has a lot of wear and tear in the finish. I may look into that.

    I had the frame and bbl of my 226 9mm refinished using the matte black duracoat and after ~ 1500 rds, it doesnt even have the smiley faces on the bbl....

    For the money, Duracoat is hard to beat.....

    Just be sure the surface is clean and bead blasted before applying the finish....
