RARE NICKLE PLATED VALMET M76 .223

I am considering the sale of my Nickle Plated Valmet Model 76 . This gun was originally purchased at J & G Sales in Prescot by my father in 1990 (production date of 12-03-1986).

Nickel Valmet

Nickle Plated Valmet M76

I have a Nickle Plated Valmet M76 in .223 with a Semi Wooded Stock born on 12/3/1986. I wanted to know if you have ever heard of a Nickel Plated version? Do you think it is factory or has it been done after the fact? This was in my fathers collection and was bought in June 1990 as a nickle plated ve...
