I'm letting a professional do it. Going to do the barrel band and the screws with it. New cover so It shouldn't be pitted. Worse case senario I'll just replace the parts. Henry only has the same cover for the .17 varmint.
I've done small nickle plateing and have the setup for that. Hade nice results with triggers, hammers and small parts. I'm having these done by a pro that will do a good job with the copper and then the nickle so it will be druable and shine like a mirror.

Dropped it by a professional plating company today. The fore grip ring and action cover (as well as screws) to get nickel plated. I've got a small plating set up but not big enough for the cover. They can do the removal of the paint, clean, copper plate then nickel plate. Gonna look great. Should be ready in a couple of days
