It also depends a lot on whether the part has to be functional and/or true to the original. To illustrate, a bolt could be made of steel, but use a piece of round brass for a handle. It would be functional, but not true to the original. OK to shoot, but not for a museum. Or the bolt could look perfect but be made of aluminum. It would be original looking, but not functional, though OK for a display.
