Re: Reblued or Rebarreled?
I use my fingers. When the roll was run across the barrel, metal was pushed up, and ought to be palpably present, to consider the gun original.
If it's too smooth, the barrel is refinished, since the 'burr', from the 'roll engraving', has been polished away!
All the earlier tips are valid, and ought to be considered, but, if you cannot 'feel' the letters, on the barrel, it is not the 'real deal'.
