    Nickel plating new and old style BT-99's. Process includes stripping old blueing and polish all parts. Offering mirror and satin finishes. Mirror finish really makes the engraving on the old style stand out. I specialize in BT's, but will do other guns and parts. $225 Includes receiver,forearm iron, and return shipping.

    Contact me at ketchum@psln.com with your name and phone number.

    Thanks for looking.

    I do not know who did my nickel BT99, but I love it. Here is a pic of my gun.

    The stock is custom Phil Simms. I bought the gun nickeled. Ostensibly, I bought it for another person. But they thought I paid too much and so I decided to shoot the gun and it quickly became my gun of choice. Tom may have done my gun, but regardless, it makse for a nice looking and durable cannon to traipse around a trap field.

    Do you use the low-phosphorus nickel or the high-phosphorus? I am told one is prone to tarnishing for certain people.

    My son is one of these people i use both hi and lo phosphorus nickel
    I cured the problem with a special clear coat and this process takes 1 week to fully cure.
    Thanks, Tom

    Do you have a website? Or perhaps pictures of the satin and mirror finish? I would love to see them side by side. I was almost sold on a bone charcoal case color, but I just may go this route instead!
