I have a Fitz Detective Special I am picking up next week and the original box is in pieces. I would like to have it restored.

I've done a few over the years - but they take an inordinate amount of time and patience.

Find someone connected to a museum, and they may take on the project.

Bring lots of money.

Two votes for Randy's Toy Shop. I will check them out. I also may need a donor box lid as it appears that part of it is missing.

Randy's charges somewhere around $75 per hour from what I recall, and he may need up to eight hours to to do the work. I sent him photos of a Shooting Master box that was in pieces. I decided not to spend the money, but given the rarity of your gun, you may want to pursue it. Does the box somehow reflect the gun is a Fitz, or at least have the serial number written on it?

Yes the gun is lettered as a Fitz and the box has the matching serial number.
