I do not believe that has been relined. Some TDs have mint bores, even if the outside is scruffy. You would not hurt that one by rebluing. The stock looks quite nice.

But, IMHO, two things:

(1) Have it rust blued, by a gunsmith that knows how - the modern "black chrome" appearance that comes out of some shops looks like s**t, on a period piece.

(2) Tell them to keep polishing to the ABSOLUTE MINIMUM, so that edges are maintained!!!!
