That’s what I was wondering myself. I can’t really tell from my old pics since they’re pretty terrible photos. The edges are still sharp on the screw holes but the depth of that screw on the left side slightly concerns me.Looks fantastic. Possibly slight dishing of screw holes, hard to tell only if you’re asking.
Ok, are you saying it should be perfectly flat for a good refinish?To my untrained eye it's hard to tell this is a refinish --especially from the giant right hand side photo above -- the only obvious giveaway to me is the rampant colt. I do know other areas to look at closely include the side-plate seams and the seam at the front where the crane joins the frame. These will often have a "trough" instead of being perfectly flat where they join.
Refinishing a gun is not an easy task to complete without leaving glaring clues. But this one is done rather skillfully, so it is not a poor refinish.Thanks guys, unfortunately I didn’t take very good before pics. It had scratches throughout the barrel with scratches going straight through the finish and showing bare metal. Not major. Some scratches throughout the frame.
Martin08; so your saying it’s a poor refinish or your just not a fan of refinishing ?
