I'm sure that refinishing that Colt WILL seriously reduce it's market value.
BTW- it's not rusty.

I think you should show the gun to a serious collector in its current state to get his opinion. I think you'll be surprised at what he says.

Having the advantage of having seen and handled jal5's Bayard I do believe I would use Bill DeShivs suggestion. A bit of very fine steel wool and some gun oil and careful elbow grease action. jal5's gun is a family heirloom and it's right on the cusp between needing that or refinishing.
