Reblue?

I have a model 19 that was my original issue when I went through the police academy in 1975. I carried the revolver for about ten years before we switched to the 659. During the years I was carrying the 19 in a leather duty holster a good amount of blueing on the barrel, cylinder and frame wore off.

There's no rust on the gun as I take good care of it, but I'm thinking about getting it re-blued but I didn't know if it would hurt the value of the revolver. I would never sell it and plan on passing down to my son. I'm close enough to Springfield that I can run the revolver to the S&W factory to have the blueing done.

What say you? Reblue or leave it as is?

If you plan to pass it down to your son, I reccomend having it reblued, especially if you have it done at the factory.

Rebluing will reduce the collector value. If you want to keep it in the family and want to pass on a gun that looks like it did when you were issued it, then a trip to S&W sounds like a good bet. Just make sure you know what you are getting.
