    Here's one by Glenrock Blue and A&A Engraving.

    I think they charge $300 or $350. A&A is the local company that does all those commeratives you see for sale in the NRA Rifleman magazine on the inside front and back covers. They do like the engraving, gold plating, metal and wood on the John Wayne Win 94, etc.

    I agree with Whiz, I also had one receiver done by Glenrock, good job and good price.

    Another cheaper alternative to similar look is Cerakote, you'll get to choose many different colors.

    This is one of a few receivers I had KYguncoat did for me. $75 includes disassembling & re-assembling. If you send them new springs with your gun, they'll install them for you, no extra charge.

    Here's an old, rusted Perazzi MX-8 they did for me, polishing out rust spots at no extra charge.

    Nickel wouldn't be my choice for durability. I'd use some of the more durable/modern plating material.

    Here's my 27 yard gun that was done by A&A Engraving, again, the folks who make many commemoratives you see in the NRA magazines.

    The owner is a good friend of mine. He wanted to try this satin chrome on the receiver but was apprehensive because of the properties of chrome. He said it could alter a shape due to its high strength. He was absolutely thrilled with the outcome, but then again they are pros in the plating business.

    One place to stay away from is CraftGuard in Iowa. They ruined an MX14 (a new one). I have the photos to prove it and posted them on here a couple of years ago. They threatened to sue me if I made a big deal of it, but I did anyway. My attorney was going to go after them, but as he said, "The best defense to a law suit is a state line." It gets too expensive. Those idiots even wanted me to ship it back for a 4th time. I figured a 4th time to them and I gotten back a brick of swiss cheese steel. It cost me $500 to have Giacomo himself try to fix their etched botched up job.

    The gun pictured was new combo in 94 and chromed in 95 or 96. It is a perfect job and has stood the test of time, certainly longer than any blue job. It looks absolutely the same now, 17 years later. In fact it was involved in a freak accident that saw some rust, but this was 100% impervious to it. It is my pet gun - a killer from 27.

    I tried the stock for a day and then resold it. I can't shoot a collapsible stock, as I hold ttooway tooo tightly.

    What about coin finishing, like on an sc3? Is that too expensive?
