I guess I'm not sure if I'd take the case out or not? Pretty simple actually.. with all that, would it be a shooter.. or just a wall hanger? If it's only going to be a wall hanger anyway, I'd probably leave it as is. Is their no evidence of the back of the casing at all.. or just a hollow tube now? Without the firing pin proof anyways, I'm not sure that removing the casings hurts the potential value anyhow? I'd think a new FP, and being able to shoot it would actually increase it(value)... unless it is really a relic?
