SS and blue is the only finish I?ve ever heard of, however the SS is possible to polish enough to ?appear? to be a bright nickel finish. I have personally done so to a Vaquero I own.

Thanks guys! I tried to research and could find no references as to a ?nickel plated? Redhawk. Someone mentioned that they were offered as a ?special order? from Ruger......but, I?m skeptical! After all it was the Internet memtb
