I have a Broomhandle, s/n 349xxx. S/n all match, condition about 10% blue, brown patina otherwise. bore is only lightly pitted. New style safety. 7.63 caliber. Any idea of an approx. value?

The exterior condition is a factor that knocks the price down a bit, but I think you should be able to get $350 to $450 for it still, and to the right collector, maybe more.

Speaking of Broomies, I have a Bolo model, German construction, that is typical of the last batch of imports - minimal exterior pitting, but the bore leaves a lot to be desired. Can anyone recommend any decent restorers of Broomhandles, perhaps even to include resleeving or reboring to 9mm (can't decide it I want to stay with 7.63 or not).

St. Louis area restorers preferred, but I wouldn't have much of a problem sending it out.

I have have good reviews of one restorer (I think it was Mentor Arms in Ohio), but last I heard he was retiring from the business.
