Just picked up a sweet 1911 Colt Officer's Model. It is nickle plated and has a few places on the slide with mars. Does anyone know of a way to refinish a nickle plated gun without stripping it to bare metal?
I'm really open to suggestions. I guess the easiest would be to blast it and make a matte surface. That would be acceptable. As a last resort blast the affected surfaces and have someone apply one of the new baking enamels.
