I purchased a sts python a bit ago and just got it back from Frank Glenn with a great action job. Now I would like to polish it, like the bright sts pythons. Not to sell it as a bright sts, I have no intention of it going anywhere, it is one of those forever keepers. I am sure it will destroy some of it's value, but i do not care about that at all. I have been bit with the bling bug since I sold my nickel python because I am a shooter, not a collector. Any harm in doing this besides dropping the value?
