I'm having doubts that there is going to be a good option for gold (at least one that would be used). Someone brought up black nickel in another one of the threads here and I do recall seeing MM with black nickel that looked pretty bad ass (picture included, HEP build). Let’s see if we can get some sort of majority here on what would be preferred. I say black nickel is the way to go on this.
Here are a few pics of what I found online for the options mentioned. If the gold looked like the shiney gold plating, it would look damn good but, its most likely going to be closer to a powder coating seen on this LOTR image..no thanks. Standard is OK but, lacks a good pop.
I say black nickel. It gives the game a very sleek look. The question would be does it have the durability concerns the mentioned for the gold?
Oh ah yes, Mccune, another thread on this turd again. Beat yah to it!
