I have a kel tec P11 & 32 that I would like to nickel plate(open to suggestions) for corrosion resistance. Are there any parts on the slide that should not be plated besides the sites and the firing pin?

thanks,

Olazul

Olazul, the smith who does the plating will know which parts can and which can't be plated. The alloy frame on a Kel-tec can't be nickeled. I have an associate who does very good with either nickel or chrome. If you do it in a brushed or satin the frame can be anodized to match. George
