Unless the specs say the contacts have 30uin (0.76um) they are likely at best gold flash. That may be sufficient, and certainly better than the really cheap ones with nickel plated contacts.

30uin plated ones are available from Digikey, etc., which will have a higher mating cycle spec:

The MilSpec ones have to meet other specs that likely aren't relevant, and I've forgotten what they are!

Great informal F5J practice today at our DESS field.
Really windy all day at 15 mph. Cool temps about mid 50s.
Lots of zero flights due to power saves.
