Probably hard chrome. BTW, factory nickel porkchops are the bomb. The nickel really slicks the lockwork because of the nickel on the inside of the frame and sideplate. Put in Wolff reduced power springs and it is as sweet as any revolver made.
This I will attest to this as well. I had a 15-2 refinished in bright nickel through a local gun shop who did the tear down and reassembly. The actual refinishing was done locally as well by the (now defunct) US Firearms Company. Every surface inside the frame is smooth as glass. Lots of smoothing and polishing, and the gunsmith obviously did a lot of careful fitting and tuning. Easily my most highly prized handgun.

I concur with the consensus here, ZERO chance of any stainless Model 12’s available at all.
Nickel guns of any sort was/were introduced a bit after DW’s production ball was rolling initially. I know there were special nickel & engraved guns destined right from the get-go. But the earliest examples of box labels I have as proof are currently…model 15-1’s…
And the model 14-1’s
Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.
