I'm looking for some sort of permission to get my Official Police reblued. It's quite holster-worn, but not too heavily shot.
Or I guess I need to be talked out of it.
Here it is with a .357 that arrived about the same time. (The stocks are Eagle Classics in rosewood.)

Bill, I would not. If it is fairly heavily worn, it has already lost almost all of it's collectable value. If you re-blue it would also lose any possibility of collector value and may even be worth less. The way I see it, if you re-blue, you spend a lot more money and you lose.
Another point is that Official Police are fairly common and not worth putting a lot more money into one for just a shooter.

You don't need anyone's permission but I think it looks nice the way it is. I prefer them to look a little "used". Nice looking gun.
