By removing the normal patina and aging of the gun, the faker can obscure various areas that might have been worked over and such arms should be closely inspected. A. REFINISHING Refinishing antique guns is generally frowned upon; in quite a few instances it actually detracts from value, resulting in a less desirable and less valuable item (even though good money has been spent for the refinish). The practice of making a relatively worn gun, or one that has been heavily used, look like new is rather incongruous, and the effect on the gun is quite the same.
