What's wrong with nickel plating a Colt M1911A1?

Though since that it's not a factory finish, I'd dock the price by at least half if not more.

It is a very early 1911.........

Sometimes the finish is so bad, you need to refinish it one way or another.

They should have picked "another" - parkerizing would have been a reasonable choice, like the original finish, and would have required less polishing/metal removal.

Nickel, on that gun, is a really, really bad choice.

That one is way over priced but it would be nice to see someone send it to Turnbull and restore it.

That nickel is a great way to hide a LOT of pitting. May be worth about $800
