    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!

    Robar is what I plan to go with eventually on my revolver.

    I've got a LWD G34 slide I had done in Armorer Black Cerakote. Looks good, is wearing good. I'd go with Graphite Black next time though. Not as flat.

    I have 2 in graphite black. Excellent finish wears well only nickel boron is better. IMHO

    Don't have to sell me on them. Got this about a month ago: :)

    Sadly it kind of lowers my funds for this less than tier 1 project ;)
    So looking at lower cost options than SI. Thanks for suggestions all!

    Know it's old tech, but I had a Glock 21 slide Hard Chromed by "Rock your Glock" I think, a lot of years ago, I kept it for 4 or 5 more years before selling it. No wear at all, but it did have that "orange peel" I really did not really care for much. Anyone have better luck that route?

    On the positive side when I sold it "Bad Boys" was making comback due to part two coming out, and got more than my money back on the deal.
