Who knows where I can get a great hard chromed finish on my HK P7M8 for daily carry IWB or deep concealment?

How much? any pictures/references?

I'd like a black hard chromed finish but don't know who does them?

I use Metaloy , they charge around $115 for a 1911 and 1 mag . I looked into the black chrome once [I think it was called "Enduraguard Black Chrome"] and was told by the finisher that it was more of a black finish over a satin nickel , they said it was not as durable as the regular hardchrome . I have had around 6 handguns done in hardchrome and have yet to have any problems with rust or discoloration . These are all carried in IWB holsters . Good luck , Mike...

JT, I farm such work out to Checkmate. They do all my plating and do excellant work. I highly recommend them. George

I'll add Accurate Plating and Weaponry - - to the mix. They just did my STI and it's flawless!

Between AP&W, Checkmate and Metaloy, you probably have the "Holy Trinity" of gun plating! Can't go wrong with any of them.

I hear Virgil Tripp has a winner with his new Cobra Chrome but I haven't seen any of his work.
