    another option is to remove the blueing, polish it and then spry clear coats over it.........now that's bling-bling.

    My working rifle for many years was a 458 Lott. I still have it and will never part with it. Over the years I have it reblued 3 times. In the end I accepted that the gunblue does not last. What I do now is wipe it with an oil rag after I have used it and that is good enough for me. The bottom line is do you hit what you aim at. Years ago Jack o Conner wrote "Only accurate rifles are interesting." Wear and tear is part of the character of any fire arm.

    Errol the scope was put through glass peening/blasting

    It would interest me to see how powder coating would work.Then again you dont want to try something that may turn out a flop.

    On resale value. I currently own 17 firearms. I have given some firearms away in the past but never sold any. It is like jewelry. It is not an investment, unless you have a British double in mint condition. For me personally I will buy more but resale value is not a factor because I am not planning on selling. It is a tool to be enjoyed. If you keep it in mint condition you will never enjoy your firearm to its full extent. I am not saying you can abuse it, but with normal use you will get wear and tear. With me it is the enjoyment that I do get out of the use of a firearm.

    I can only agree with you on that. I think having a rifle that shows it has been used while well maintained is better to have than either a rifle that looks like it was built yesterday or a rifle that has been abused. Then again I think you should allow for the guys that are that way inclined also. I have more often then not heard an assessor say that the value of an antique article has been lost due to having refurbished it. A rifle you don?t sell, you use it for ever or pass it on to somebody that can.
