I have had some gun parts plated before, so I will pass on what I learned from that.
The plating is gonna add material to your parts so you have to take that into consideration. If the parts were plated before, then I am sure that this was figured into the tollerances. All parts will have to be taken apart so you are plating single objects, not assemblies. You will have to prepare the parts, this means polishing them so there are no visible surface defects. Any pits or scratches that you can see will be visible after the plating. As you are polishing the parts, wear cotton gloves (the inexpensive brown cloth gloves work really great!) so you don't leave fingerprints that might show up in the plating! Other than that, nothing to it!! Any other questions, you should probabely check with the plating shop to see if they have any special requirements. good luck
