Removing chrome from a trigger frame

Hey everyone, I have a chrome trigger frame on my autococker and I want to get it anodized black. Is there a special way to remove the chrome?

Thanks!

Probably easier and cheaper to buy a black one. Chrome can be stripped off and there are companies that sell a chrome/nickle stripper (it is normally pretty nasty stuff). Caswell claims their ano stripper can strip chrome but I have never had luck with it plus you need to run a current through the parts to use it.

The biggest problem that I have found with stripping chrome or nickle plating is you never know what the condition of the metal under the chrome is. It could be pitted all to hell and will never look right with anodizing.
