But- you're very wrong about plating. Perhaps it is you who should read up on plating. Industrial hard chrome, nitriding (which is not really plating,) electroless nickel, electrolytic nickel are much more durable than any paint. I'm not slamming your work. I'm stating that your knowledge of firearms finishes-especially plating is lacking.
LOL.. I pretty much expected this type of response... I am certainly not comparing painting to plating.. You made a statement that plating was better than blueing.. I simply stated that you are incorrect. There are many styles of coatings that we apply to firearms.. Some prefer the flash of chrome and nickel and some prefer the more traditional finishes.. Then there are the "painted" finishes and the matte style called parkerizing.. Dude, look, you do your thing, I'll do mine.. But you are so wrong about plating. You simply will not live long enough to see your product fail as all plating will in time.
I've been in this forum a long time and simply do not have the time to continue argueing with close minded folks like yourself...
