My custom Colt Commander is my only Tripp hardchromed gun and it was a great job. LOVE this gun. It's on par with many of my semi-customs, as it should be, since the only thing Colt about it is the slide and frame and those have been re-fit. All Wilson and Ed Brown parts with a Bar-Sto match barrel and Novak night sights.

Thank you. Wish I could take the credit, but I am the second owner. Owner was a TX LEO who purportedly had it built by Eddie Jimenea. He had great taste and I am just the lucky one to benefit from it. It was his go-to gun for requalification and is very accurate and smooth.

I had two guns hard chromed 30+ years ago by Armoloy in Texas. One, a Gold Cup, is still owned by a family member and still looks about like it did over three decades ago. HC is the hardest, toughest finish I have ever experinced on a firearm. Cleaning is easy, fouling just does not stick to the HC. I will attempt to attach a recent photo of the old gun. I don't care for the rubber grips at all, but it's not mine anymore ;-D

This Commander was plated with NP3+ by ROBAR. Can someone tell me what the difference between hard Chrome and NP3+ is? I know that ROBAR says that the NP3+ is a nickel and teflon mixture that is self-lubricating

I had this one done last May, and it seems to be holding up well. The points where the gun rubs in the holster have become shiny (polished?), but don't seem to be wearing thin or anything. I like it so far!

None are stainless or blued.

They're carbon steel hard chromed.

Is hard chrome the best finish to apply to an EDC gun? Not understanding metallurgy (SP?), what are the advantages of hard chrome vs nickle, parkerizing, NP3 - or any of the other finishes you hear about? Or, is hard chrome chosen mainly for its looks? If you are looking for rust resisitance, would it just be better to go with stainless steel in the first place?

I'd say it's one of the best.
