They look great Norm, you talk about turning a pigs ear into a silk purse, nice work by elitecustomguns by Duane and I really like those grips from Thailand too.

Norm,
Talk about a super job. Man they look brandy spankin new. Now their shop is close to I.O. Inc in Monroe, NC. Man I should have sent one of mine to them to get the hard chrome job done.
Beautiful photos too. Sgt P.

Nice! I occassionally come across some guns that could use some refurbishing and would look nice if dressed up. I have done some bluing and parkerizing on some guns and have considered getting a chrome job on a couple guns. If and when I get back to being employed I might have to look into this further. ;)
