Where to get a Hard Crome finish on a pistol?

My brother is looking for a place to drive or send in a pistol for a shiny Hard Chome finish. He would prefer to find a place in Texas. Does anyone know a reputable shop? I have checked previous posts and found some links to a couple places, but they seem to be out of order or out of business.

In Texas, Armoloy of Fort Worth is good, but I don't think they offer a bright polish. They do theirs in the original flat gray finish.

Probably the best place is APW/Cogan. They offer hard chrome in finishes from flat gray, a stainless steel look, and a full mirror bright polish.

The following are also good. Each offer different options on the final finish look and on pricing. Do some reading.

Try Armoloy, industrial hardchrome in Fort Worth. I had a Walther done by them several years ago with excellent results.
