I'm not sure, but something tells me that somewhere along the way, WA has been accused of worse.

Anyway, I don't equate an Enfield to a Picasso (at least while there's more 'n hundred or so left) and don't know why anyone would. Go ahead and Bubba it up.

Uh, Yeah...

Your best bet if you did refinish, (which I would do) would be to make it LOOK original. You know how the old K98's had an almost red finish, well I found one that was faded to some kind of baby puke green. I refinished it and uh...I wouldn't have had it

All this talk of ethics vis-a-vis refinishing is relative anyway, as anyone who collects C-96s knows. There are refinished C-96s bringing 5 figures, but they were refinished correctly.
