Thread: Nickel Plating Service

    Nickel Plating Service

    Anyone know of a reliable place that will nickel plate small parts? Need to have a bolt and trigger re-nickelled for a Winchester 68.

    There are lots of companies that can handle that but for two small parts it might not be cost effective.

    Nickel plating will result in a bright finish. Electroless nickel plating will result in a less brilliant appearance but a harder and more wear resistant surface.

    A google search will yield companies that can do both.

    Investigate nickel plating kits. I have used such to replate some small parts on antique typewriters but don't have contact info any more. Google may or may not be your friend.
    To paraphrase Ronald Reagan, the trouble with many shooting experts is not that they're ignorant; its just that they know so much that isn't so.

    Thats kind of what I figured about the small parts, may be hard to find someone that would be willing to do for the probably small profit. And yes I have looked at the kits but way too expensive for what I need to do. I don't have or forsee needing to do any other parts that would make the kit cost effective either.
