Sales rep says Ford's did the finish. Who is Ford?

Found Ford. Chroming alone is $250

Anyone know this man's work?

He is pretty well known in the custom gun circles.

Ford's did my P7. Flawless job, every part is plated inside and out. To me, well worth the money.

If it looks as good as Tx_Oil's, it may be a pretty good deal. Can't really tell tho because the pic at the link won't enlarge. My P7 has the Robar finish and $350 it's more expensive by about $100 and doesn't really have the shine that one does.

Ford's is considered the best in P7 refinishing though they are slow and expensive. That is a good deal on a Ford's P7 if there is proof he did it.

A member on HKpro asked him to confirm the finish. I'll post back if I see anything.

Thanks for all the replies.

The finish on TX's is shinny. These for sale are brushed. Great looking gun, TX.

There is a hard chrome P7 sitting at Jim's in Baton Rouge. Don't know who did the finish.

Thank you! It's actually my wife's gun. When we sent it off I was thinking brushed finish but she really wanted the high polish look, to go with her XDm (polished slide) and her BDA in nickel...so what could I do? The polish is spectacular!!

So much temptation. Since there a bunch of P7'ers in the house, any of you guys interesting is these:

I'd like to try to get him closer to 110ish. He has different colors as well.
