    I just inherited a S&W 32-20 that is a nice solid pistol. The only problem is that the chrome or nckel is in need of repair it is coming off, is this something that can be done and if it can would it be worth it.

    The gun would have to be stripped, polished and replated. $300 or more.

    I know that the pistol isn't that valuable, but if I were to send it to someone who would you prefere.

    That S&W link is primarily for job-lot BTB runs. I would contact them first about doing a one-off that is not warranty. They may just subcontract that. TechPlate in California (of all places) does OEM quality electroplating and has done contracted work from the S&W Performance Center.
