Just wanted to inform the esteemed members of this forum for those that did not know. Re-blueing, ceracoating, aftermarket Nickel, Etc does not increase the guns Value it does the opposite. A worn factory finish is still worth more than a aftermarket job. This is especially true if the gun is collectable or even heavily sought after. Even a factory reblue will lower the value. I am not saying you can't get your gun coated just don't expect me to pay for it like it was a improvement.
