    While we were at tht BBQ a couple of weekends ago, I gave Josh a couple of handguns to refinish for me. I had taken some pictures of it before I gave it to him and I just took some pictures of the finished product. Here are a few before and after pictures. This thing looks amazing. Thank you Josh!!

    He also refinished an old High Standard Derringer for me, I will post pictures of it in the Rimfire Forum.

    The value of a historical or high end gun would definitely go down. This particular gun is a beater and stays in my car door pocket. I paid less than $200 for it. When you see the pictures you will see the refinish job was truly needed.

    I don't know, Josh will have to answer that one, if/when he comes along.
