Most plated parts, especially nickel plated, use a copper "base" for the plating to adhere to. Any solvent that is used to remove copper fouling or deposits from bullet jackets will attack ANY copper, they don't differentiate. I have seen very a valuable plated 1911 ruined (not functionally, just cosmetically and value wise) because the owner found this out the hard way.
