    Thinking of having this baby done in a satin hard chrome.
    Would you do just the frame or the whole thing?? Just looking for opinions.

    I'd do both. I only like two tone if they come from the factory that way.

    I would do the entire gun. But be sure to have anything changed before you send it, for example sights, frontstrap work, etc. Metaloy is hands down the best hardchromer in the biz. :thumbsup:

    I would have it satin hard chromed with brushed slide flats.

    There you go as far as HC is concerned....but I'd re-blue it.

    Not a two tone fan

    Good choice, hard chrome is an awesome finish. Do the complete gun.
