    In that case, My suggestion is Ionbond.Again, around the same price, but a much superior
    finish. Search "Club Custom Guns."

    Most Cerakoters charge as much as the hard chrome platers. I would have the chrome finish done.
    It's much more durable.

    Anyone that tells you their grip material is heat treated is a liar.It sounds like the grips

    Do not use WD-40 on your firearms. WD-40 turns into a hardened glue-like substance if left on
    over the long term. Use Kroil or PB Blaster for breaking rust. I inherited 2 Mod. 29's that

    They don't have to be very strong for a pistol cartridge.I think the 1892 lever action carbines
