    A good friend of mine bought a brand new Perazzi MX 2000 and after a year of carrying over his shoulder, barrel forward, in the Texas heat and humidity, the bluing began to wear. He took his to Briley's here in Houston and they did an absolutely fantastic job of plating the reciever and forend iron. Really looks great, but they don't work cheap! I think he paid around $600 for the work if I remember correctly.

    I've always wanted to do this K-32. I think they look great like that (yea, yea, K80 clone, I know).

    I wonder if a local dipping blace could do it cheaper than Briley. I can't see spending $600 on my low-dollar K-gun.

    I bought a MX10RS from Ray Stafford sometime back. The receiver was nickle from the factory. I sent the trigger to Giacomo to have a nickel finish put on the trigger and trigger guard, came out matching the receiver perfectly. Giacomo does fine work on all Perazzi guns. He is also very reasonable on pricing when you need something done to your Perazzi. Hope this helps, Roy

    I was in a hurry last night.

    If you are in Tucson for the Autumn Grand, I do bluing and can have Nickel done, both at reasonable rates.

    If I have the receiver and forearm iron, any other parts wanted done, by thursday evening, you can be shooting the shotgun monday morning.

    I've used Mahoskys on pistols, rifles, and shot guns - exceptional work. Firearm will be totally disassembled, all parts will be plated inside and out (save springs and inside of barrels), and reassembled - proof fired before return.

    Prices are great too - about one quarter of what the others are asking...

    Very hard finish (72 Rockwell C)- with very high lubricity.

    I have had this on a carry pistol for perhaps twenty years - not evident of wear or corrosion.

    Did you have your shotguns nickel plated or their "metalife" stuff?

    Why the hell would ANYBODY pay that much money for a fine gun and then screw it up[not to mention its resale value]?

    I've had both the metalife and nickel plating done - nickel plating is best for pitted or damaged metal - 'clean' metal is suited for the metalife (I have always let them make the decision as to what was best for the firearm - never been disappointed) Metalife is a grayer finish - the nickel has a slight yellow cast to it. Metalife is VERY thin, where the nickel builds up.

    If a firearm is damaged, rusted, pitted, or heavily worn - refinishing isn't a bad thing. Likewise if the intended use is rough environments. I've never done it to an expensive firearm, so I'd have to say no lost value there for me - your firearm might differ, but that's your choice.
