Default Hamilton model 27 .22 cal restoration

Ive been given a Hamilton model 27 to restore. It is the owners grandfather's gun. ITs in pretty good shape for being about 100 years old and im wondering if I should touch it or leave it as is???? Its a sentimental gun for the owner (who isnt a hunter or shooter) and he is not condsidering selling it but simply wants it looking new (er)

Its a pretty cool little gun.

That is an individual choice that is totally up to the owner. If he would be happier with it looking like new then go for it.

Yeah he is aware that he could sell it for as much as $200 but he is not motivated by money and values sentiment and his son shooting the gun over $$$. My kind of guy in that regard.

Without seeing any pictures mind you, I would gently remove any rust that I saw, touch up the finish if necessary, and leave any "character" flaws that I saw on the furniture. There are just some weapons that should not be messed with.
