Nothing is that hard with the proper equiptment. I just did my gun with the help of a smith. He had a lot of nickel jobs building up so I offered to help him if I could do my gun. He agreed. The most important thing to remember is the surface preparation. What you see is what you get magnified. Any little scratch will show. We had a 12 step process, thats not in the do it at home kits and temps are critical and have to remain constant. But, go for it. worst case you send it out and have it stripped. Best case, great looking gun you did yourself.
