Silver grip frame
« on: December 19, 2020, 10:34:47 PM »
My replica 1862 police is a nice looking pistol. But looking at the pictures of originals and reading about the details it became clear the grip frame needs silver plated! Found on the internet magic lotions claiming to put real sliver onto copper based alloys and ordered it. Short story I couldn't get the stuff to do it. A call to the folks I ordered it from for tec support yielded no help but she said she would send me another bottle. Not what I wanted to hear. The new bottle arrived and is different stuff with the exact same instructions. This works well! My photos aren't very good and the grips are different but I hope it gives an idea.

Well done, and I like the new stocks as well. (smile)
