    Default Rejuvenating the Terminator

    My Terminator is showing some wear.
    Hell, it is a blued gun closing in on 30 years of age... and has been a carry piece most of its life.
    I want to send it off and get it refinished so that I have no wear or corrosion issues.
    If they can give it a once over and make sure it is in tip top shape... even better.
    I am leaning towards hard chrome or maybe an NP3 or NP3+.
    Of course a new set of grips would be bolted on also.





    Any finish suggestions or places to send her off would be appreciated.

    I'm a big Robar fan and I love their NP3 finish. A little trigger work and then the NP3....sooooo smooth!

    Awww, how cute.
    Looks like a long lost little brother...


    Anyway, yea, NP3 and where are you finding grips?
    Mine are in excellent condition and I'd like to put on a shooter set.

    Mine has the S&W round butt K/L size grip frame.
    Only difference is the pin location at the bottom.
    It has K frame grips on it right now.

    Oh, I thought I had heard that but it looked like the screw would hit the spring.
    Guess I'll have to try a set.

    Thanks for confirming it.

    Turn it into a "pimp" gun. Hard chrome it.
    The oracle is in. Age and treachery will always overcome youth and skill!!

    I have had a couple of suggestions to send it to Mahovskys for his Metalife hard chrome finish.
    As of right now, I am leaning that way... the fact that it is also a smaller in state shop helps.
