    I may consider a nickle finish on a K32 I have. Tried the "search" engine with no luck. Anyone know a good company for this work?

    I can highly recommend Doug Braker (Doug's Gunsmith Shop 218 947 3600). He did a beautiful nickel plating job on my K-32 a few years ago; excellent work for a fair price, good communication throughout the process and he even found and repaired a broken part that I wasn't aware of !

    I can recommend Don Braker as well. I had him nickel plate a Mono Gun with the gold like finish for the trigger and pins. Work was flawless and reasonable.

    I echo Doug Braker. He nickled my 90T HPAR. It has been beautiful ever since. Call or email him. He is an outstanding man of integrity to do business with.

    Here's a nickel job by Doug Braker, beautiful work. I wouldn't hesitate to send him another job for nickel finish.

    Here's an alternative finish: "Cerakote" by Kentucky Gun Coatings, nice work too, at 1/4 of the cost. See above link for details.

    Many color to choose, satin or gloss. Cerakote is most popular among race gun shooters. Many factory pistol & rifle came with Cerakote now days.

    And the Cerakote Steve mentioned is also nice. We just had this done, and I think it was around $325.00.GaryL.
