He has a very nice older gun that needs refinishing and he wants it nickle plated (which was a factory option for this gun when it was originally made but Colt apparently won't do it any longer).

Does anyone know a plating shop they can recommend? It doesn't have to be a gun shop--last one I knew somebody had redone was by a Harley shop that did chrome work and the gun turned out great.

You might try General Magnaplate in Arlington. I visited their facility about 8 years ago and it was very impressive.

Thanks, Sheltot.

Does anybody else have a plating source?

Nickel and Chrome are COOL.

If I could afford it... I have a 1911 I would totally pimp out.

Make sure your friend understands electroless nickle is yellow colored if he goes that option.
