Greetings and thank you's in advance to one and all. I'm a newbie here, but have been lurking for a while. I recently lucked into the purchase of a Colt .357 revolver serial number 998. It has a target hammer, the fully checkered target grips are in excellent condition, and has a well worn pair of smaller style grips, both with the silver Colt medallion. The revolver is in about 85 to 90 percent condition (just honest holster wear) and I was able to buy this jewel for $200. Woo Hoo! Should I keep as is or send to Colt for refinishing (about $250) or would I ruin any collectors value. Hey, what is the collectors value on this revolver anyway? I find very little information available on this model. Thanks.
