AC,The bolts are indeed chromed. I just verified this on page 251 of Brophy's book which states, "Round type breech bolt is made from alloy steel and is chrome plated." My 1994 made 1895 is chrome plated as well. AC
Does anybody know if marlin uses any nickel plated components in the stainless guide guns? Or how I could find out if they do? I just kind of figured that a stainless gun was all stainless. I have never really thought about if any of it was nickel plated.
