    So I gave decided that I want to refinish my xds to a bitone finish. There are 2 that I am looking at. CCR CPII or Robar NP3. I know there have been several debates on this I just want to see those that have them done and why they chose the one they did. Thank you in advance.

    Welcome to the forum. I am not familiar with either CCR CPII or Robar NP3. I also am not familiar with the several debates that you referred to. Links would be nice.

    Can't speak to the other one, but Robby Barkman has done some work for me in the past (he was right up the street, I lucked-out) and it was top notch.

    That was 20+ yrs ago, at the infancy of "fancy" gun finishes. Before that, it was all blued or stainless. He was a pioneer and I'm pretty sure he's still at the same address in PHX.
