I recently stopped by my favorite gun store and asked the owner about getting some parts hard chromed. He said that bead blasted nickle was virtualy the same thing, and was in fact the choice of the local LEO's. What do yall know about the two and their pros and cons? I am looking for a finish that is wear and corrosion resistant to protect the non polycoated parts of my CZ P-01. I have seen lots of products promoted by distributors and manufacturers, but what I am looking for is tried and tested results of our members.
Thanks in advance for the help,
