    Starting a new descriptive gun category

    “It has been refinished & I don’t care!!”

    So far, it is a category of one..... a Post War Pre Model 30 in .32 S&W Long from circa 1950.

    It is an adorable little watch fob!!!

    Best,
    Charles

    "He's got a .32 gun in his pocket for fun"
    I wish they wouldn't plate the hammer and trigger on these old S&W revolvers.

    Cool idea for a new category. Below are a couple Frontier Scouts that have been lovingly refinished.

    My dad's old 1915 M1911 that he nickel plated back in the early seventies when it was just an old gun. He inherited it after the death of his grandad and the gun was found in a shoe box, in the top of a closet, still in its GI flap holster. My Delta is in the photo just because this is the only one I could find at work.

    125th Anniversary, got rid of the cheap gold plating and royal blue finish. Now it looks like a new 2nd. Generation.

    Well ... ok!

    We can do this.

    Smith & Wesson Model 1926 (3rd Model) .44 Special

    Shipped to Wolf & Klar in March of 1931. Smith & Wesson factory refinish dating to July of 1974.



    It was 43 years old when it was refinished 45 years ago. Third Model of 1926 I've had and I have it for 25 years.


    Mongrel Colt Model 1911

    Bought this out of a pawn shop for myself as a 21st birthday present in 1978. Refinished by Augusta Arsenal and dogged to death since. I learned about all things 1911 and about .45 ACP reloading on this pistol. Wouldn't take for it.

    Now that is a refinish most worthy. What a good eye he had for restoration of a ham-handed polish job. Don't think I've ever before seen a photographic example of such an outstanding surface restoration of less than stellar work.

    Which reminds me of this hoary ol' survivor roosting here.

    Smith & Wesson New Century First model "Triple Lock" .44 Special.

    Before Gene Williams did his best to rehab it.





    After a heroic effort including re-cutting some markings.





    Everything's better with a little floral Heiser leather.
