    I know Tripp Research does a great job w/ hard chroming, but does anyone have experience with their Cobra Coat?

    Tripp has decent turn around and I am having him hard chrome a slide for me right now. Was thinking of having my TRP refinished eventually, and was wondering about the durability of his finish.

    I hear good things about Black T, and was just wondering how the Cobra Coat compares.

    I've never seen Cobra Coat, but I have seen the Black T from the SA Professional model.

    First of all, I never used to like the matte black finish, until I saw the Black I that is the standard finish for the Professional Model. I must say, my mind changed quick! Its a nice matte finish, but sorta utilitarian. It'd for sure make your TRP look like a PRO at first glance...

    But, take a look over at the 1911forum and try to find M.45, he Cobra coated his Les Baer TRS, and it looks absolutely awesome!!

    Of course 1911forum is currently down, so you'll have to hunt around for other pictures of the Cobra Coat.
