Remove the slide from the frame, remove the barrel and send it out to the shop of your choice. CCR-Refinishing will do it for $39 +8 for return shipping. Mine will be going there soon. John

wow, the plating really looks great and I hope this post isnt in the wrong place but what 'What is the best way to keep the blue on the slide?" I have several other handguns (only a High Standard that is blued) and was wondering what is the best way to keep the finish. I kind of like the blued finish.
thanks,
Joe

joe113- the best way to keep the blueing on a gun is to never put it in a holster! This is a carry gun, there will be some blueing wear no matter what... use it till it bothers you, then spend $40 bucks at CCR and get it refinished!

I also would like to have my slide done, Is it safe to say the process is the same or not. It seems that CCR is the least expensive. I have never had one done before, but the pictures look great.

Thanks

I looked at a NAA Guardian because of the stainless construction, but went with the Ruger because it felt "right" to me.

Back in the "old" days (my first duty weopon was a revolver-didn't use pistols back then!) I had a "nickel" electrolis plated python that held up great.

I think I'll join the plating club and have mine done too.

I have a Colt Gold Cup that I had hard chrome plated 20+yrs ago, still looks real good, it has been shot a lot but not carried much. John

Accurate Plating -Hard Chrome. The earliest plating of any LCP in America. Ok, I just made that up, but it had to be one of the first ones done back in early July.
