It really looks like new. Good job. One question though: does restoring a historical firearm hurt the value? I am not asking about this particular gun, but in general.

Thanks,

Robert

Situational dependent to me. This pistol did not originally cost me anything and it was worthy of a restoration (all matching and battle damage). In the end, it cost me $1,000 to have it restored and shipped.

To me, it was worth the cost to restore it properly.

I would not do this to an all original and matching pistol unless it was in very very poor condition and the cost of the restoration did not hurt the original cost of what you might have paid to obtain the firearm.
