Anyone know of a firearms refinisher in Illinois? I'm in Central IL and would like to know if anyone knows of gunsmiths that do hard chrome or electroless nickel finishes in the area.

Can't help you with your home state but I have sent out ten pistols and one rifle for refinishing to Techplate (www.techplate.com) in California. Prices are good and they're back to me in four weeks. They have great email customer service mainly through a gent named Marshall. I've had nine of the pistols hard-chromed, one rifle hard-chromed and one aluminum pistol frame black-anodized. I couldn't be happier. Good luck and take a look at their website.

Thanks. I'll take recommendations for non-IL shops as well since I may not have luck finding one locally.

Hi Martowski:

Call Bill Oglesby of Oglesby & Oglesby in Springfield, IL. His phone number is: (217)
487-7100. He is a 4th generation gunsmith and does excellent work.

Hope this helps.

Brownell's in Bloomington doesn't do it, but they may be able to direct you to someone who does.

Wow, talk about a brain fart!

Should have been Darnall's, not Brownell's. I was on Brownell's website on another tab in my browser when I typed that.

Darnall's (http://www.darnalls.com/)

Thanks poolboy. Yes, been to Darnall's quite a few times shooting at the indoor range.
