It may be because they don't do the type of process for firearms. It is a bit different. True nickle has a slight gold/yellowish tint. I like it better then chrome for looks, but that is on bike parts.

I will call a few local to me and see what they say.

Well, my hunch was right. Nickle on firearms is different then on static covers and parts. I found one guy here that will do it, but the minimum charge is $1500 for him to set up. Screw that. Oil burnish those parts and let them shine or coat them in clear.
