I hope I don't catch too much flak for this but I'm looking to get front serrations on my G20 and have it matte hard chromed. Can someone post a picture or direct me to some? Any info on refinishing Glocks and who does the best work would be appreciated. I'm considering trippresearch.

There was a company called Checkmate in Florida that was doing chrome slides they do good work but not sure if they are still around.. you can get the chrome in mirror polish, matte, or brushed (which looks just like stainless steel) Best of luck

I'm not a big fan of having my hand near the muzzle of a loaded weapon so I don't have the front serrations but I do have 2 Glocks with h.chrome matt finish slides. Both were done by Lone Wolf for $125ea IIRC.

Thanks for the photos and replies. HotRod, Did you have the extractors hard chromed also? If so, have you had any issues with them since? I'm still leaning torwards tripp research.

Tripp Research. 'Nuff said. I think they do the best hard-chrome in the industry and it's not that shiny stuff, it's a very muted, almost brushed, chrome. Really easy to clean too. MJD

No, if you ever have to replace it, it's not worth having such a small part re-h.chromed all by itself. The G24 was done in '95 and the G32C in '98, neither have any sign of use. The G24 has 40k+ rds through it and the G32C almost 30k. I carry the G32C daily, either with the "C" barrel or my extra G23 barrel.

That sounds about right. Tripp's Cobra Chrome is an amazingly strong material. I don't think that is too bad for the quality of the coating you get. Here's a pic of a Beretta 92G Elite that was done in Tripp's chrome. The mags and all steel parts were also done in chrome. MJD

Glad you like it. In real life it's actually a bit more matte than the picture shows. You will not be sorry if you have Tripp do your chrome. I'm thinking about having my 1911 slide done in chrome and then Norelling the frame jet black. MJD

My daily carry G23 was matte hard chromed by Custom Glock Racing. Mine came out very well and is much easier to clean and shows very little holster wear from the Blade Tech kydex IWB rig.

I'll be sending my new G20 to Tripp next week. How does NP3 compare to the hard chrome? I've been looking for photos of NP3d Glocks but couldn't find any. Also, on the bottom edge of one side of the slide on my G20 there is some sort of imperfection or pitting. I didn't think much of it until I compared it with my other Glocks. They all have a perfect fit and finish. Is this a non issue? I'll post pics as soon as I figure out how.

No, it's on the very outside edge, just above the circled image in your pic. Is that just normal wear in your photo? I'm still at Image Shack trying to post my photo.

Thanks for helping a beginner.

Ok, I resized your photo. You talking about the area circled?

Link Posted: 2/25/2006 12:28:39 PM EDT
Yes, what's the prognosis?
Link Posted: 2/25/2006 6:41:13 PM EDT
No worry, just shoot it. Just a casting flaw. Won't affect a thing.
