Old Star/new look

I've had this old Star Model Super in 9mmLargo since the early 90's and paid dang near nothing for it back then.
A friend who is also a gunsmith ventured into what's known as "dipping". I had this old Star dipped as I didn't want to possibly ruin one of my Smiths or Colts. I reload for and shoot the old Star 9mm Largo(9x23). It's a head turner at the range. Just curious, but have any of you folks had this done. The finish is very smooth and hasn't shown any wear after having this done two years ago. I'll post a few pics of before and after.

Nope, that's a new one on me as far as the process. Did get my first camo gun, though, in my ugly Sig P220, recently. Nice to know I'm not the only one with a camo gun.
