1868 nickel question

Posted by D Miller on Friday, 27 October 2017, at 12:20 p.m.

I have been fortunate enough to examine one of the thirty Model 1868 rifles that were nickel plated by Beardslee Mfg. & Nickel Co. in 1870. All metal surfaces are plated except for the entire lock assembly. Were the lock assemblies plated or not? I suspect the assembly may be a replacement. Any information that will help answering this question will be greatly appreciated.
