  1. I know about the problems with the plating building up on surfaces such as where the barrel meets the receiver I just didn’t understand what you were saying. I was drugged up from some surgery yesterday. Thank you the information.
  2. Actually you have left me confused and thinking this is a bad idea. If I understand what you are saying is; 1. Electroless Nickel applies evenly but will peel if scratched and will discolor with use. 2. Electo Plate does not apply evenly meaning high and low and no spots. 3. Hard Chrome is durable but has high and low and no spots. The blue finish on my Uberti 1873’s is in excellent condition. The factory blue does look uneven on the side plates maybe suggesting high and low spots in the steel from not being sanded down properly. So (#1) Electroless Nickel is out due discoloration with use. 1 and 2 will peel from Hoppe’s #9 or aggressive cleaners. So both are out. That leaves (#3) Hard Chrome. Will being brushed hide the uneven surface? Do all of these give unsatisfactory results on long gun with smooth steel? This as compared to bead blasted rough base metal such as on a shotgun.
  3. Any chance of seeing a picture? but that is a vote of confidence.
  4. Being new coming back to the SASS Forum I am not sure where this question belongs. I also tried to do a topic search but came up empty handed. (Searches on most other websites are usually unproductive for me also). I also have come up dry on pictures. Now to my question. I have two Uberti 1873 Carbines. One is chambered for 32-20 and the other in 45 Colt. I have often thought of getting one refinished in Hard Chrome or Electroless Nickel. I am not interested in Ceracoat or paint. So I am curious to hear from some pards how refinishing a rifle or carbine is working out. Pictures would also be see. If this topic has been covered please direct me to it. I can’t be the only shooter that wants to do this. Thank you in advance.
  5. A unfortunate incident resulted in rusted buttplate and screw. The buttplate has been refinished but the screw looks terrible. So I want a blue finish buttplate screw that looks like new condition. Thank you in advance.
  6. Thank you Goody for the links. VTI is showing the butt plate in stock. The picture they show looks like the style I need. Unfortunately they don’t list the butt plate screw. I tried calling them but got their voicemail. I am not feeling very lucky at ordering through their website. I am going to try calling them again tomorrow.
  7. I checked with Taylor before posting this want to buy ad. They only have the rifle buttplate which is the wrong style for the carbine. Do you know anyone that has it in stock?
  8. I am looking for a like new / excellent condition butt plate (square/flat at top) and screw in blue finish for the Uberti 1873 Carbine. (I have been away from the forum for a while and had to re-register due to server change).
