When I came to Florida in '85 I needed a rifle for the sailboat. I picked up a ak and 6 mags at a gun show. Even though I kept it wet with oil it started to rust. About '90 I broke it down for a major cleaning. It was horrible! I took it up to Checkmate and when I walked in I knew I had been steered right. The office also doubled as the assembly room and there on the back wall were 30 or so ak's in hard chrome and bead blasted. As I stood there waiting my turn a UPS truck drove up and left 100 .50 Desert Eagles. Two weeks later I picked up my ak and mags and they were like brand new. In '93 we had the "No Name Storm" and I had 4ft. of salt water in the house. I had to take in my S&W .41 magnum. One week later I got it back and it was flawless, and the trigger was greatly improved. I have taken all sorts of beaters to them and they have brought them back to life and so have many of my dealer friends.

Sounds like they have good repeat business, repeats say much about a company. I think the fellas were clowning on the color scheme of the rifle.

HF, I'm just curious how the Hard Chrome on your firearm is doing. I had a Full Compensated Colt 1911 with a Brushed Hard Chrome finish, after about three yaers the finsih began to show signs of deterioration, the chrome has what looks like pepper flakes in it. I was told this is normal. I really want to try Black Hard Chrome or a NP3 finish for my IPSC guns. How's your hard Chrome weathering?

Checkmate did a Commander for me five years ago that still looks great, no sign of wear or black specks.
