I prefer honest wear to refinished guns. A lot of them end up this way because someone gets a hair to have Grandpa's old gun
refinished for sentimental reasons. Then gen X gets them and burns a trail to the pawn shop to cash them in. I have taken off
hi gloss finishes to redo with something more pleasing. I am guilty of this myself, I put high gloss finish on 1897 Win stock that
should have been left as is. If a gun is good mechanical and good bore I'm inclined to buy it and put the retro on it. Only at prices
that reflect refinishes, less than a honest shooter.
