Preparing Metal Finish for PLating/Coating

I'm considering having the boron carbide finish applied to a P7M8. I would like to find a very skilled pistolsmith who can bead blast the pistol and brush the flats carefully without removing markings from the slide. This person would also have to disassemble the gun, ship it to Bodycote and reassemble it when coated. Who do you know who does top quality work?

Jeff, just about any smith that does refinishing work should be able to handle this for you. You might check locally. I'd be happy to do it. Are you having it completely coated or will it be in the Tiger Stripe finish like that knife in their ad? if you'll e-mail me with details I'd be happy to quote the job for you. George
