I recently sent four of my blued steel Mini-14 factory mags [do they come any other way?!] to Mahovsky's Metalife for plating. They recommended their electroless nickel finish. Still waiting on the mags to come back. Now, I didn't think to ask this until later, but isn't there a chance that this particular finish will flake, chip, or peel with normal use? I would ask Mahovsky's, but they often don't answer their phone, or e-mail for that matter.
