Yeah I know, the "tenifers" under the finish, wear is beautiful, and all that. I have a Glock 34 that I shoot competition with that looks like something Baba Fett would carry after escaping the belly of the Sarlacc that digested him, so I get it. All that said, just want to have this one done for whatever reason. I've had CCR do guns before, and their CPII is fine, but no sale going on right now, and I've not looked at or researched various platings for awhile. Anything particularly good come out lately? or any pretty good deals to be aware of?. I'm open to the boron nickel, chrome plated, or black, not feeling the gold pimp stuff. Thanks!
