so my friend has a plating machine and offered to gold-plate some pieces on my handgun. for now i had him do the entire trigger and assembly, tear-down pins, and slide catch. i think it turned out pretty good and i like having something different. i'm thinking about having him do the safety, mag release, and grip screws as well. anyways, here's the picture, and the gold plating is real 24karat gold:coolman: .
