    Ha! Just checked my mail and I got a little box from Jack!

    I had him nickel plate my P3AT.

    He also did my PF-9 about a year ago. The P32 is hard chrome.

    Looks very nice! I really want to send Jack the slide to my Bersa 9mm to be plated. I'm afraid it will end up being a little more expensive since it's more complicated than the Kel-Tecs though. Jack lives just a couple of hours south of me; I wish he was close enough for me to just drive down and drop it off... ;D

    It looks amazing! Very nice family picture. You should be proud. :cool:

    How has that held up for you for daily carry?

    I carry the PF9 the most (virtually every day) and it shows NO wear in a year and a half.
    As you can see, I use a belt clip tho...no holster.

    Another great plus, the nickel plating acts as a lubricant.
    I only use a few drops of light weight oil, no grease on any of them.

    Great to hear. Sounds like a good treatment to a slide. Looks nice too.

    Just got back my nickel-plated P3AT slide from Jack. He did a great job, plan to see if he will deep blue my 1911 slides. Said it would take 3 weeks, 3 weeks it was. No doubt that the slide is MUCH slicker.

    Looks real sharp! I duracoated mine and like it but the nickel plating looks good too. Let us know how it holds up.

    Jack has done several guns for me...great quality work and INEXPENSIVE. He also has done his full "Fluff and Buff" on all the guns I have sent him...including mags.

    I had a few problems with my Kel-Tec 380...and after his "Fluff & Buff" I have NEVER had a problem! :)

    Looks really nice! I'll be sending all 4 of my K-T's. Wonder If the Glock's will take well to this treatment?

    DOZER: Don't know about a Glock. I sent him my HK (Heckler Koch) Mark 23 SOCOM for a full "Fluff & Buff," slide and mag job. I trusted him with this gun which cost over $2,300! To get back to the SOCOM slide finish, I had the slide Dura-Coated back to Afgan. Tan.

    Had my P3AT done about 1 1/2 yrs ago and no wear even tho I carry every day. Had my P11 done a month ago  and another beautiful job. Something that no one has mentioned and is a plus in my opinion,  it tightened up the slide and increased accuracy on both of them.
