I'm thinking about having one of my guns nickle plated. There's a gunsmith in town that will do the job. Has anyone here had a gun nickle plated? Any input as to positive or negative will be appreciated. Thanks.
I would go with the matte finish, much like the brushed stainless.I had a Colt Trooper MkIV that was nickle plated. IMO, too glossy for me actually. Rather have something like brushed stainless or matte as it were. Semi non-reflective maybe. I'm not a flashy person and pretty much reserved. Thinking about things tactically, and all pistols should be flat, matte, blued, or black. I like my P220 two-tone with stainless slide just the way it came from the factory. That's about my limit on being flashy. I think NP³ finish is just a tad less showy than chrome.
