Rehabbing/refinishing will decrease its value! Clean and oil it and leave it at that.
Back in the day it wasn’t uncommon to see a 32 caliber revolver on the line at bullseye competition. The middle stage of a 2700pt match required shooting a center fire handgun, the 38 was most folks choice but a few opted to use a 32 because it recoiled less making it easier to shoot.Aw man, I really appreciate that. Are you sure that won’t set you back too much? Might need to work a trade so your not hurt on this deal
There is no way that the rail hurts the value----I did notice the Triger was wider and looked like it would be a lot better this way.After further research this gun has been what they call “King Modified” by late gunsmithing legend Dean King.
The sight rail, hammer and trigger shoe are all King custom. What I can’t find out is if this helps or hurts the value. They guys on the Colt forum are slow to reply.
She cleaned up nicely tho
