A. I think what you may need to do, cousin Carlo, is to find the tubing in the size and alloy you are looking for, and then independently contract with a plating jobshop to hard chrome plate it for you. I strongly doubt that anyone stocks tubing of this alloy already hard chrome plated.

A. Parker Steel Company stocks 42CrMo4 modified cold drawn round tubes in metric sizes. They are located in Toledo, Ohio USA. Their tubes are not chrome plated.Paul Goldner
