I would first find out if the laquer could be removed at a later date without damage to the original matt finish.
If the value of a Colt revolver that was made for only a couple of years is to be preserved, applying any kind of "after-market" coating would not only detract from its worth but, imo, would be virtually impossible to restore to its original matte finish. If the original matte finish "bothered the owner" enough so that he might consider having the finish changed, my advice to him would be to sell/trade it for something more to his liking-and let an appreciative Colt aficionado enjoy the revolver for what it is and for what it was intended to be.
Of course, if he owns it, he can do what he darn well pleases with it.
