[QUOTE][Any refinish is going to hurt the value, and Czech issue VZ 24's are getting scarce. /QUOTE]
can i just blue a small spot or do i have to blue the whole barrel?
the areas i am concerned about are probably no larger than dime or nickel sized.
Also can someone tell me why rebluing an old Mauser would hurt the value? Does this not further preserve the rifle for future generations?
