Im looking for a reputable place to send my S&W 29 to be hard chromed. Everywhere Ive checked seem to only work on autos. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks-

Yes, Tripp research said they no longer plate revolvers. I havent tried any others, but I dont know of many others! :o

I sent my Glock to Virgil Tripp and he is the best in the business as far as I'm concerned. If you can't get him to do it, I'd try metalife (http://www.mahovskysmetalife.com/). They are also very nice people, but the turnaround time isn't quite as fast as Tripp's.
