Hi, I bought a brand new Peterson Xl 315 standard system. I was just wondering if anyone can tell me if the Nickel mount is plated or is it solid nickel?
Thanks

Nickel plated brass, I’m 99% certain... Solid nickel work hardens rapidly and is somewhat difficult to work with.

(See what I did there... I left myself a 1% out.)
Thanks. I read somewhere that the older ones are definitely plated, just didn’t know about the more modern ones. Thanks for the reply.

I always assumed it was solid cupronickel aka "german silver". I've never seen one flake which nickel plated guns are notorious for, but maybe I just don't get out enough.

Some old neglected Peterson with nickel band shows band flaking off if you look through flea bag. I wonder if Peterson will upgrade pipes with silver.
