Thoughts then on refinishing say just the cylinder for a nickel python? I have a 1969 4" nickel python that I got and it looked nearly unfired, but I fired it anyway. My disappointment came when I came back from the range and noted that the cylinder had some nickel flaking off it - devastating to me. Should I
1. skip the refinish,
2. refinish just the cylinder (or would that now be a mismatched finish?), (by Colt - maybe if they do it the value would not depreciate?)
3. find a replacement cylinder/extractor in Nickel, or
4. refinish the whole gun? (again, by Colt)

Appreciate anyone's thoughts on that. I actually have it for sale on GB now to see what I can get for it - if I cant get my reserve price (what I have into it), I'll consider refinish options.

Wow thanks so much for the great information and guidance. I'll likely let this auction run its course and pull the auction down after that. I really like the Python and feel that I'm really one of the first shooters of it. And I am very careful in removing the screw. Screwdriver link is excellent thank you now I have to do is wait till the fall and send it in when I start taking orders again a colt.
