Any interest in nickel plating marlin bolts



Log in to see fewer ads
I owned a Rem 597 and always enjoyed how easy the bolt was to clean. I am in need of a new hobby and have been thinking about nickel plating for over 10 years now. I am wanting to know if electroless nickel plating of Marlin parts is anything you guys are interested in?

I thought the bolt would be the most logical and most requested part to be plated. I know there are guys here who own multiple guns and have boxes of spare parts for them. I am trying to assess interest in people who would want to be guinea pigs in getting their bolts and/or other parts plated.

The first batch I would do would be at cost and for those who are going to use the parts imediatley so I can get feedback on how durable the finish is and the pro/cons of the process.

Please soundoff below and/or shoot me a pm if you are serious about having something plated.

I'm not clear on what the point would be. As it is the bolt doesn't rust, it doesn't need much more than a quick wipe to clean it other than in any little crevices and edges. And nickel plating won't do anything for that unless you fill in bits.

ahhh

Ahh. You have never seen the bolt on a Rem 597 and do not understand. The point would be to deposit a layer of nickel onto the plain steel marlin bolt.

Obviously there is no interest in this here. I will have to inquire elsewhere as this is a common upgrade that many take who own semi-autos.

The marlin autoloader bolt is not "plain steel;" it is stainless steel and all it really needs is a bit of polishing to look good and perform well.
