And no indication whether it's registered as a SBR or not?

Don't know what it would cost to have Drum's plated, but I could look around, and perhaps offer a Group Buy on plating?

But ATF one appears to be a 28. Maybe there is a long lost set of nickle plated 27A3, 27A5, 27A1, M1 and 28 out there! Keep you eyes open.

Years ago, the Uvalde, Tx Sheriffs Office had two nickeled Savage '28's. I tried to buy them but they were on a F10. sad.gif

I just bought a M3 Grease Gun that was owned by a policeman in the 1960's and it is Nickle plated. Cant see why anyone would plate a gun LOL.
