I’ll have to look there. Thanks for the heads up!

The exterior on the Walther box is naturally there from old age, but the partition inside the box is torn in three pieces (I’m guessing from the weight of the pistol bouncing against it during handling). The beretta case is perfect inside, but definitely could use some love on the outside as it seems someone just slid the case around with aggression. I wondered if there was a way to buff the scratches out, maybe even protect the finish a bit.

Each case I have has a bunch of silicone desiccant that I rejuvenate and rotate every other week, along with a regular lubing at least every other month if it’s not being shot.
