    I have been looking for a S&W Model 65 3" for quite a while, but have not had any luck in locating one in good enough shape that I would want to pay what they are asking.
    This weekend I ran across 2 S&W Model 13 3", which are basically the same revolver but in Blue instead of SS.
    I've never really given any thought to putting a more modern durable finish on a revoler.
    Any sugguestions, experiences, ideas, pictures?

    I have often wondered this as well... wonder what say, an Ionbond revolver would look like and hold up like.

    Matte hard chrome from Metaloy would be my choice.

    Ditto.
    And ditto. Chris does great work. Here's a crappy pic( on my part) of a Python he HC'd. He can probably post a better pic of it. I never saw the gun in person, but the picture he has of it at his shop is awesome. :nod:
