"I'm an electroplater. Today at work we had the opportunity to plate parts of an assault rifle in 24 karat gold. M16 maybe?"
I, myself run the electrolysis silver, tin, and electroless nickel which are used mainly for production type customer orders. My manager is the one who runs the gold (quality customer orders). And sorry I don't know the equipment the gold runs off (just today he was teaching me about the gold). Other than that if the gun is metal, we can plate it. The only parts you would want to plate would be on the exterior of the gun. Pating adds thickness to metal and you would not want any plating inside because it would interfere with how the gun works and assembles.

When I'm unanimously acclaimed President of the United States following the Second American Revolution, I'm gonna mount that gold-plated AR to the front of my desk in the Oval Office... :cool2:

The first comment corrected this. From his other posts you can tell he is doesn't know anything about guns. He just posted it to a gun sub forum for those that do.

Waste of money. Waste of a firearm. To each his own.

Thinking the same thing, like a gun they featured in the movie End of Watch...

I love my AR's but I have to agree with the majority here; should be with an AK. Like the one from Lord of War.
