This isn't a half rail Operator but it's close (it's a full rail milspec cut down).

This was the king daddy of all hard chromed operators... I had a 12 month wait for it when I ordered it in 2008....

9mm, Custom Shop Fullrail Operator with a bull barrel. I sold it late last year, but itw as pretty sweet. Matte factory hard chrome. (it had a hand checkered front strap, but I just liked those grips for the way they felt during actual usage)

Damnit you guys! Now I'm gonna have to send mine in to the custom shop to have mine done. All your fault. Lol. Next year after I use her up a little more I'll get it done.

Anyone recommend a shop they have used in Orange County or Riverside to get a gun Hard chromed?

Techplate I think is the most well known one in SoCal (Anaheim).

The cut lines on top of the slide (40 lpi?) is the best thing I've ever had done. It just helps quickly to acquire the sight picture and reduce glare.

That has to be the most beautiful 1911 I've ever seen. Does it still shoot well or did you have to refit everything?

Techplate does the plating for many smiths in the area. You can get it done yourself, but you have to completely, and I mean completely disassemble and re assemble your gun. Sights are a pain. and you have to take into account the thickness of the plating, it does tighten up the gun a bit, so it can be a challenge.
