My name is Paul Doc and I am a new member and this is my first post. I recently acquired this revolver and I am looking for advice from people who are way more knowledgeable than I. The former owner had polished this gun in the 1940s (I know) it has all matching #s including grip. The serial # is 29929. Is this something you would get refinished because of the polishing? Everything works very well on it but I don't want to fire it unless it is looked at by an professional. Any advice would be welcome. Thanks to all who reply. Doc.
