    I don't know if Virgil Tripp is still doing chrome but he would be my other choice.
    Bob Cogan earned his place at the top of the list of refinishers. I readily see how Taurus employees got on his nerves. Unless the situation has changed, those at the warranty/repair center demonstrate that they are uninformed and lack authority to make decisions. If Mr Cogan found a defective part on his customers gun, Taurus policy probably required that he return the gun.

    In the past, I jumped up and criticized Taurus at every opportunity. I hear that things are getting better.

Mr. Hogue made a set of grips out of goncalo alves that fit my hand perfectly. The grips had what he called a recoil shoulder which he felt helped redirect the recoil of the revolver. I still have the armoloyed Model 19 & it is still wearing Mr. Hogues grips & both are still in excellent shape. A testimony to quality workmanship.
    How about some pictures?

    Id especially like to see the grips.

    Hard chroming

    awp-101 was kind enough to post my photos on page 3. The stippling & hard Chroming on the hi-power were added by me after I received it. The grips on the hi-power years later.
