I need to find a place in or near Long Beach. I want to hard chrome ( satin finish )my STI Edge from its factory black and want the the side of the slide to be polished to a mirror finish...

I want to find a reputable place soon because I'll be doing a sight tracker upgrade on the slide @ the end of the month and want to chrome it after...

I need a place near me or with in a 100 mile radius; I dont have to mail my pistol out. I cant be out of my old comp pistol for months on end...

I already found that place before... They don't do frames... Because they don't have an FFL license. I've tried Dave's Metal Work, he does do hard chrome but doesn't polish... I need a one stop shop...

Really? I had work done on my Operator from TechPlate. When did they lose their FFL?

It states on their website, that they did...

And their price list doesn't say they do frames...

Maybe best to contact them to check...

It's been a while, but Techplate did my Sig & they ended up taking over 2 months to hard chrome some pieces on it. They started getting really snippy with me when I started to "ask how much longer"? Hopefully their phone manners have improved.

You'll have to ship but Metalloy is top notch and very quick from what I hear as well. You may want to look into them.
