Yea Dick, people sometimes have the tendency to want to make like new antique guns, knifes, deep sea diving helmets that removes that historic patina that only time and use creates! Like I first mentioned, I think I knew the answer to my own question, I just needed a collectors input to ratify what if anything I would, should do to continue its preservation and use hopefully!
I'm glad to hear that to shoot these old relics are still encouraged! I would like to experience shooting and hunting with it, it might help you appreciate what living in that era was like a little bit! Thanks for taking time to answer my questions!
