      Robar and Fords come to mind.

      I've not ever read nor heard anything bad about Bruce or his staff here: http://grayguns.com/about-us/

      If you want refinishing Tony and his staff at http://www.customizedcreationz.com/ is reputable.

      If it's a historical or highly collectable piece you want worked on I don't have any idea other than decide carefully before you do anything as the value will likely be changed with any work done. Not sure what you want done or to what but good luck to you.

      Another option is CCR.

      Thumbs up

      I've used Robar (for a NP3 coating on a XD slide) and CustomizedCreationz (for a complete coating, polish, engraving and Wolff springs on a S&W). I'd recommend either American company.

      Can you expand upon your reasoning ?

      "robar" in arizona or for hard chrome plating, "metaloy" in arkansas or "checkmate" in florida, should all be considered. My most favorite is "robar np3" for a lifetime for a durable & easy care finish.

      I don't understand how you can include this "Fords" as a recommendation !!!

      I e-mailed those folks several weeks ago and never received a response to my inquiry.

      I followed up with another e-mail recently and also have received zero response to it also.

      If their gunsmith skills are not any better than their communication skills, then I don't know that I would want them to work on my firearm !!!

      On the other hand, the Robar company responded almost immediately.

      I know first hand that Brad and Mary do excellent work. I sent them a slide and set of controls and had them finished in CeraPlate. I couldn't have been happier with their service and quality. They are top notch to deal with and pay great attention to detail.

      Before.....



      and after.
