I hope someone out there can settle this question for me on the english proofs on the colt saa's and other's sent to england.
Did vonoppen have the guns refinished again after proofing was done.
question, if a brand new blue or nickel gun was sent to england,and apon arrival sent to the proof house, why then did;nt the area around the stamps start to rust, particuly on nickel guns. or did they,and iff so would of that been good buisness practise for the agent. although the bermingham proof is very tiny, you would think it would brake the nickel.
I have a few blue ,pommy saa's, no nickel, but none near mint to see if the stamp area is rusted.
appreciate any comments.
