Hello,

Satin nickel versus matte chrome, which is most pleasing to the eye? If I recall correctly chrome is harder and would be more durable right? How does the satin nickel hold up? Can either of these be polished to a mirror shine?

Thanks alot for all your help

I personally like the Colt Satin Nickel type finish. On durability, I'm lost.


I've had guns armalloyed before. I've got a couple of rough smith revolvers that I may send to metalife:

I bookmarked this link from last year, am considering tackling this as a project. It may not be as durable as a hard chrome, but at least its cheaper.
