I believe that it is nickel plated, not stainless.

Hi Fingers, that set is a beauty!! Will you keep a revolver like that on display, or does it become royalty in your gun safe?

That nickel looks great on the Dragoon. That's one more reason for getting a Uberti Walker kit and finishing it with nickel.

Regards,
Richard

Are you sure?  Maybe it's the photos but it looks to me as if someone rubbed some tin foil on the gun and used white out on the grips.

Okay, okay...don't be hatin'....I thought it might have been nickel but you've been buying up everything under the sun stainless, so I thought...maybe? Could be?
