I buy old guns mostly because of their history. Not history in terms of wars, times, or any significance to anyone but the former owner. The idea that that old cheap 22, single shot, or bolt shotgun was some kid's first gun many decades ago. Or how many meals did that old pump gun put on some farmer's table.
So as to "restoration", I think that would remove a lot of the well earned character from these guns history. Therefore for me it justfix what broke, replace what's missing, and give them a good, and thorough cleaning.
