    I have seen ads for black chrome finishing for firearms. What is this process and do you have any sources for materials and techniques?

    We've played with it, unsuccessfully.

    We have a black oxide for guns, but it's not the same. See http://www.caswellplating.com/frames...tom=/black.htm

      Could you give details about this not being successful. I too, have been considering Black Chrome for firearms.

      Can the Black Chrome be plated directly to the gun steel?

      Would it be better if the firearm components were nickle and/or copper plated first?

      Thanks in advance

        Hey, that's actually very nice. What is the corrosion resistance of the finish?
