I'm having one heck of a time making up my mind on which company to have refinish the slide on my new XD. There are all kinds of company that offer the service, but which one is the best.
I'm not a big hard chrome fan, but would like to maybe get a different color.
Any suggestion would be really helpful as to who to go with...rust prevention, scratch protection etc.

if you are not in the mood for chrome, Tripp is ruled out.

Rust Prevention/Self Lubricating/Great Service/Custom Colors/Fast Turn Around = CCR, does great work

Or, you could *clears throat* 'allow' or 'find' your XD to rust a little and send it in to SA so they can refinish it under warranty

I think Gazukull got his XD refinished at Mac's. It's real sharp looking. For me it's a toss up between Mac's and CCR.

I had my slide refinished with the Metalcol III finish from Arizona Response Systems. I really like the finish. This is the website if you'd like to check.

Somebody could make a lot of money doing monthly batches of XD slides in a predetermined finish. I knew a guy who used to do anodizing for people that way and made a killin', plus offered quick and inexpensive service to his customers because he had a whole batch at a scheduled time.

That is a crappy recommendation. Springfield offers fantastic warranty service and you would tell people to abuse it. :evil:

Putting that recommendation last, *clear throat* and 'allow' and 'find' was my attempt at humor..sorry for having you take it the wrong away..

And they do offer a fanstastic warranty, and if his gun does rust, excercise it..

Mac did my first HS2000 and it's great. Tripp did my XD40 Tactical hard chrome and it's almost too pretty to shoot. :eek:

The finish not only looks great (Brad really does class work), but that's the best close-up of a gun I've seen in quite some time. Crystal clear and lighted very well. Nice job. I wish I could get results half that good with my overpriced digicam.
