Wow...PVD coating is expensive!

Okay, so I put my feelers out about getting some PVD coating done on a particular gun of mine. Specifically, Titanium Nitride coating. Super durable, and it's a very pretty gold color. Much more durable alternative to gold plating. Sent an email to a company about having one gun done, 13 fairly small pieces. This is what I got back.


Thank you for the inquiry. This an extremely specialized process. $1700, pre paid, six to 10 weeks delivery... No guarantee it will work when were done...
We can chat Thurs. About the details

I could swear I remember quotes in the $400-$500 range, not $1700. Anywho...looks like I'll NOT be getting this done.

I'm looking into powdercoating through KPCS, or perhaps a very highly polished gold anodizing job. I like the idea of a "Golden Gun" but PVD plating is WAY out of my price range. Anyone else have any good suggestions?
