thems ar' dang fine shootin irons. The "ALL" purpose, if you only have one, type of handgun, though sometimes a bit much for cc. Do what you did for yours. Not to hijack the thread or anything, but the bluing on mine is well worn [muzzle and butt], and I have been thinking of having it reblued or ceracoated, what does y'all think?
Yes, except a collectible where nothing should be altered. In those guns almost any restoration decreases the value. If you are certain to keep the gun and take it out to shoot, have Colt (if it's a Colt) put a beautiful new luster on it and enjoy. I would not bother at all with just holster wear.
