I don't see it as a waste, Richard. You tried it, unhappy with results. Now you know.
Have you thought about nickel plating? All the current Pietta nickel plated revolvers are brassers. To have a steelie that is nickel plated would be outstanding.

Hi, the Tru-oil refinishing of the Old Silver grips has been completed. The Old Silver is now again ready for shooting.

Wow Richard, that looks really good! Specially without all that distracting gobble-gook on the sides of the barrel. Nice work!

Good work Richard.   I guess that gun is destined to be silver.   Looks good like that anyway
