Is there anyone still nickel plating besides Palmers?

Is there anyone that can still do nickel plating besides Palmers? The links in the sticky are dead and I am looking for someone to do something special on my K series. I thought about the Matte Nickel from Palmers and its a good price but I really wanted a Polished nickel or the Nickel striping. Palmers will do the nickel striping, buts its an unreal price. Anyone?

Speak with Stuffy. He has a source, but I don't know what it is.

You can see if Big Matt is taking plating work.

How long is the body?

If you're anywhere near a city with an industrial area there will be plating/anodizing shops. Ask them for samples beforehand to gauge whether or not their work is acceptable for you. For example, my neighbor runs a shop around where I live. He's done some non-paintball related plating and anodizing for me in the past and it's always come out great.

Poke around, you might get lucky and have a good shop near you. It also helps if you can meet face to face with the guys in the store so they know exactly what they're going to work with and how important it is to you.
