Generally I do not like "bling" on firearms. But there is a place for it inside firearms. Gold does not rust, need little lube or maintenance to keep on working. I've owned high end shotguns that had gold plated internals (side locks) for this reason. Arrietta (spelling) made many. Also some lesser brand Spanish guns have gold plated internals as they used high end locks purchased from other makers. After seeing this thread I wonder why someone does not gold plate pistol and rifle internals?
