    The post about different finishes got me to wondering,,, Does the factory chrome cover all the pieces or just the slide itself?
    I have never seen a chromed version in person to see for myself.

    Yes, all the upper metal parts should be hard chromed; barrel, assembly pin, extractor and it's screw. Not sure about the guide rod.

    No, not the guide rod, at least not with my HC P3AT. Assembly pin and chamber area (hard to see in this pic) on mine have been polished to give, I believe, the gun a nicer look...

    Yep, and thankfully also functional.
