if you re-blue it will loose its old school coolness

If you plan on shooting the heck out of it...reblue it, it'll have an older look after a few years.

If it's just gonna sit in a safe, let it be.

I'd grab some custom grips, nickel-plate it, and shoot the stuffings out of it

I've got a 1940 High Standard Model B which is about to be Gold-plated.
The bluing has had it, has a buncha no real collector value,
so it's no harm to have some fun with it

Risen from the threads of the dead...
I have a Dura-matic 101 in 22R, 6 1/2" barrel, that has been a safe queen since 1980. Made aprox. 1964. Serial no 1370xxx. Excellent condition. 99% blue. Not a scratch other than slight slide wear on the blue. With the original "Hunter" holster. I've shot it a few times, maybe 50 rnds.(My 1911 is my weapon of choice to carry) and I am wondering if I should shoot her or just keep her safe as she was purchased well before registration was required in Ca. Any idea of her value? Should I shoot this one?

Chris, Why do you need to reblue that pistol? It looks in great shape for a 40 yr old gun...
Keep it as is.

My neighbor has one of these. When he got it the grips were missing so he made his own. They look good. Gun is pretty tore up appearance wise but it shoots straight.

I have a Duramatic as well - they are good little guns, but don't bring much $ (shh - don't tell anyone)

BTW, I bought a brand-new 6" Hi-Standard barrel for mine from Numrich Arms a few years ago, don't know if any are left. You can remove the barrel in about 10 seconds...
