Mosin Nagant Mods
So i wanted to mod a a gun since i just did a restoration so i was thinking of a cheap like $80 mosin with a crappy stock that i'd replace with black synthetic and i wanted to chrome plate the entire gun except the rifling inside the barrel because i know this wouldn't work on a mil surp rifle, but i have 2 questions, will the chrome plating stiffen up the action and should i go nickel or chrome? I don't want a pimp feel to it, more of a light two tone to make an old gun a piece of art. I just don't know if nickel plating is shiny enough because i want a little reflection, but not a mirro finish, if any one has a good link to a close up of a nickel plated firearm that would be great can't find a close up on google.
You would have the option of the when you get it plated, if not changing the finish won't be that hard. If you want a finish that is in the middle of a matte finish to a mirror finish go with a satin finish. All you would have to do is polish to plating out with 400 to 600 grit paper using WD-40 as a lube using a shoe shin polishing to keep polish marks going in the same direction.
