    I'm picking up a Beretta 1201fp police trade in. It's in good mechanical shape, but needs to be refinished from banging around in a police cruiser.

    Does anyone have a recommendation of who to take it to in the Beaverton/Portland area? I was thinking about taking it to Curt's as I really like the people in that shop, but I'm not sure if it's something they do. I had a nickel plated 870. It might be cool to have this finished in nickel. Any thoughts?

    @Velzey hands down.

    Seen some of his work first hand and some second hand, all great reviews.

    Worth a short drive for quality service and work.

    Plus he is a member here:)

    Another one for Velzey - I've got 2 guns in his hands right now for Cerakoting - one is a shotgun. I've seen his Parkerizing work too - very nice.

    I don't know if he does nickel plating.

    I have a USGI 1911A1 (that was "bubba-ized" by someone in the past) with @Velzey for a full restoration to full USGI configuration.


    Looking forward to seeing how it turns out! :)

    I don't know who does nickle plating, but I do have the spray gun attachment, and the plating can be had from most metal and welding supply chains! Just have to hook up to a high temp/ high pressure torch and go to town with it! It works pretty much the came as spray welding!

    Think I'd go hard chrome for durability personally (and a bit less shine). if you are going for the satin nickle look another option would be elecrtoless nickle - similar process to parkerizing, or possibly cerakoting in a similar color Finishes (http://www.cerakoteguncoatings.com/finishes/)

    I was interested in electro less nickel like the 870 I had, but would be open to hard chrome. Definitely do not want shiny just want durable.
