Rebuilding my great grandfather's Marlin 97 from the receiver up(inherited the receiver and 80% of the internals) and think I want to go with a chrome receiver and blued barrel/magazine. Anyone know of a place that can do the receiver, lever, bolt and hammer? The barrel came in today so I've finally gotten the build started and am kicking ideas around.

Chem Processing near Chicago.

EPA is shutting most of them down.

Try some of the vendors in this link. Good luck.

there's a shop, or was somewhere along broadway in dsm that does/did it for years.

when you want small quantity chroming done, contact the nearest harley davidson shop and start asking those guys. they get that question nonstop and always know of somebody that'll chrome small item goodies.

Thanks for the tip, didn't think to start asking the Harley crowd!

Might have a place found-anyone ever dealt with Craftguard in Waterloo? According to their price list they do chrome, electroless nickel and hot blue. Only an hour away from me, so getting it to them isn't a big issue(I hate shipping guns, even when I know I'm legal).
