Re: I'm New Here/Nickel-Plating a Magazine
G'day and welcome !
friends here who run boats used to have mini 14's (ruger) and they had their mags nickel and chrome plated to deal with the corrosion , and had no issues that i was aware and one even states even now he misses his rifle and he had a few done
as for pistols , i am unsure but nickel coatings aint that thick really , a sand blast to thin down the original would solve 80% of that problem in my mind , but others will be along soon to say ok or call me a thick head on that one ..
good luck and cheers
