I have wanted hard chrome on a pistol for years, so I finally sent it in...seems that Tripp is charging a little more, but still very reasonsable. I thought the HC would be more shiny as well, but it was a dull finish. I like that it is not too shiny. I had a concern when I received the slide back because it looked as if the top of the slide was not evenly hard chromed...Virgil wanted me to ship it back, so he could inspect it, but I didn't want to spend anymore time and money on it, so I kept it...he assured me it should be alright. I just need to order PT sights...I should be alright with them because my HK USP45c has the same night sights.
The SBS is 308...I bought it from a guy that only shot 27 rounds through it...came with 3 Steyr mags, which we all know are not cheap. This is the first rifle that I have owned with a Mcmillan stock...I handled some, but never owned one...there is a reason why these stocks are $700. The rifle has a picatinny rail underneath and an unusual swivel stud mounted as well. I put my harris with pic rail from an AR15.
