I am looking for recommendations for someone who could do nickel plating on an old S&W Model 10 revolver.
A little backstory on the revolver in question. It was my grandfather's pride and joy up until he passed in 1989. My grandmother put it in a leather holster, wrapped it up, and put it in her cedar chest for well over 30 years. The nickel plating is in flaking off in places. I would like to get the revolver back to like new condition as I know that she would appreciate it.
I understand that re-finishing a firearm hurts its value, but this is more sentimental than monetary. I have contacted Smith & Wesson directly and they are no longer offering nickel plating services. I went to Briley Mfg in Houston and they do not do the same nickel finish as what is on the revolver. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
