    Does anybody in the Portland area nickle plate or parkerize? I want to have my 870P redone in parkerized, and maybe get another 870P Nickle plated.

    Chrome Shop would be the only ones doing plating.

    I want one of my AKs done in a gold type plating.
    Just to have for fun.
    Let me know if you do the nickel plating and how well it turned out.

    Eastside Plating can do most anything you could want.

    Your best bet would be TiN plating. IMG_20140130_194440_928-1-2.jpg . Here is a photo of some 1911 parts I had plated for a customer of mine. PM me and I can give you prices. It is 3 times harder than chrome but looks like gold. I also do nickel plating. 1911 frame plated.jpg

    Now thats one way to get some wear resistance!

    I like it, but not the color. Can that be changed?

    Yes, there is also a TiN coating with carbon added. its a charcoal color. not as dark as regular bluing. its nice though and has the same wear resistance as the gold color.

    I called them today and the girl said they are set up for production work, and that they don't do one-off stuff, including firearms.
