That's how I feel when I looked at this auction.
Is it because he said it's been refinished in nickel and in no way does it look to be nickel ? I just get a bad feelin' about it.
Is it just me ?

Looks more like stainless or "in the white" to me.

Could be brushed nickle. The owner could have been going for the stainless look.

I've got a FEG Hi Power that is done in a brushed hardchrome, that is impossible to tell from a brushed stainless. Perhaps it is something like that?

Probably is 'Metalife SS' that is a chromium finish, hard (52-53 Rockwell 'C') and is a bit on the 'polished' side. That was popular back in the 70's and 80's, very durable..........

At that price does the finish really make any difference! /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

It does make a difference to the guy who's thinking he's buying a nickel plated gun because he hates Stainless.

Funny thing is that most sellers who incorrectly identify finishes claim nickel guns to be stainless or chrome. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
