Thanks everyone for your replies! For Hiwall: pics will be forthcoming, sadly I didn't take any before shots to show how it looked after 25yrs in a leather holster. For Old_Crow: If I was going to spend $80 on it, I'd just go the extra for a nice new one. It's nearly 45 years old and God knows how many 1000's of rounds down range. I'm not afraid to let it show it's history. Re-bluing is just something I'd like to try. For Drriley and willfully armed: your tips are appreciated, specially about the springs. I hadn't seen that warning before. I hope I can get everything this weekend and update progress next week.
I hit it...didn't I?
