    You might want to contact http://www.ccrrefinishing.com/ . I've seen the pictures of their work via the Beretta Forum I also visit and I must say that do some nice work. Send em an email or call em and see what you think.

    Lauer Weaponry offers DuraCoat. I have had about a dozen firearms / knives finished in DuraCoat and I am very pleased with the results.

    Here's the parent company: http://www.duracoat-firearm-finishes.com/

    DuraCoat is good stuff. And you can do it yourself if you want. (Link)

    Drop this man Bob Serva a e-mail and he will e-mail you back with his phone number. Call and tell him what you want. He does it all on a 1911. Here's his web page.

    my 2 cents

    SigSauer's "Nitron" finish will not come off stainless steel- I had a Sig P220ST with Nitron on it and it never wore off after thousands of rounds and holster/reholster cycles in Kydex and leather.

    Haven't had good luck with painted finishes on stainless-

    The Nitron finish will come off but it is some TOUGH stuff.

    As mentioned above, CCR does nice work as well as Cusomized Creationz.

    Metal refinishing

    GO TO robarguns.com & CHECKOUT THEIR WEBSITE. HAVE HAD EXCELLENT SUCCESS WITH THEIR FAMOUS "NP3" COATING ON THE FRAME, SLIDE, & ALL INTERNALS (EXCEPT SPRINGS). A COMPLETE TREATMENT WILL COST ABOUT $400 BUT YOU WILL NEVER HAVE TO DO IT AGAIN FOR YOUR LIFETIME. THEY ARE A GREAT COMPANY & THEIR WORK REALLY ROCKS--I PROMISE YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED.
