I have a couple #2's, so I guess I could put the grips on another one... just figured the gun in "good" condition probably wasn't worth that much ( I think I was the only bidder, when I bought it on Gun Broker ) & I've seen some guns from Ford's & they look better than new when they get done with them...

I understand the "rare" value, & if the gun were in better shape, I could see leaving it alone, if IMO, if I had it nicely refinished, I think the gun would be worth slightly more, maybe 1/2 the cost of the refinish, which to me, ( a non S&W "purist" ) would be acceptable...

I guess if everyone feels that way, I'll put the rubber grips back on it, & put my MOP's on another gun...
In life you either make dust or eat dust...
