Wasn?t beat up, I just prefer a stainless look.

Romae from APW posted pics of her personal 75 compact on FB today and it is absolutely stunning. I need to send my 97. . .

Without going into the chemical process for each in simple terms. Hard chrome is a more matte finish and is extremely hard and wear resistant and is very good for firearms finishing.
Chrome,bumper chrome,decorative chrome looks nice,is very shiny but is weak and not conducive to good wearability on firearms.Regular chrome also tends to scratch flake and peel easily.
