Default Savage 1907 .32 acp

I'm pretty me to the forum and I enjoy older firearms. I have a few now bit since all my kids moved out I've had tome to enjoy some of the finer things in life.
I was at a LGS yesterday looking at shotguns because I want to start hunting and was talking to the but at the counter about layaway when out of the corner of my eye I seek this pistol. I ask to see it. Long story short. I have it on layaway and still need a shotgun.
It is a Savage 1907 in .32 acp. All seems to function well but it has almost no finish left on it. I'm wondering what the value may be and if refinishing it will harm the value. Any info is appreciated.

Is this the Savage model that Colt Sued over patent infringement? That would make it worth collecting "to me" for it's attachment to JMB.

Thanks for the replies. Everything on it looks really good except the finish. I was thinking I wouldn't refinish it but from what Cane posted it doesn't look like it would hurt the value any to re finish it.

I understand that canebrake is quoting the book prices and books are often reasonably close but..... I have never seen one for sale for $100. I keep my eyes open for the Savages as I have a friend who collects them. I don't know where you are but in the condition you state out here they would be asking at least $200+. They are great shooters. And have a sleek look. But I would not hesitate to refinish in this case.

If done correctly, there is nothing wrong with refinishing a firearm.. The correct term you need to use though is "restore"..

I have never seen one either and I didn't think the $200 they wanted was out of line. I will restore it. Anyone know how the Savage handguns were finished? Looks like it was blued

I've only ever seen blued models.

I have one that was nickel plated from the factory. Beautiful condition. Still need to go shoot it.

Took a look thru the completed auctions over on Gunbroker for Savage 32s- $200 seems to be in the ballpark.

Most of those were blued. Those are not Uber collectable firearms, but were well made small autos. Go ahead, find a decent smith, get it reblued IF you are planning to keep it. 32 ACP is not real cheap ammo, but you can make a great target load using a single pellet of size 0 buckshot.

BTW, that is about 100 years old, and a nice bit of history you have there. Congratulations.
