    I have a gun that is currently Blued and I would like to get a nitride finish put on it. 1st can this be done, if so by whom and what does it usually run $ wise. I see Briley does the electroless nickel, but I don't believe this is the same as the nitride finish?? Thanks

    Go to the Accurate Plating & Weaponry web site. They have a good description of some of the better plating applications.

    Doug Braker put a beautiful nickel finish on a 90T I owned. Call him or visit his website. (See above)

    If you don't mind the finish being a bit grayer have it done by Tony DeSimone. He doesn't really do the actual plating but he prepares the parts very nicely and has them plated. He's done two guns for me and the wear is nonexistent after 3 years hand wear, travel and in and out of the case.

    Reasonable too.

    Use doug barker. He has done three for me and they are all perfect. He charges 400 and it is worth paying for the best.

    $400.00 is too much to pay for nitride finish. You can find and company that does nitrogen gas harding and get it done for less than $100.

    Someone help me,
    I was not aware that nitriding is a type of plating.
    I thought that nitriding was a hardening process that incidentally
    imparts some additional corrosion resistance.
    I have had the idea that it is very similar to the process used on
    automotive crankshafts.
    Thanks,
    Joe
