My dad bought a J. Steven's Model 28B bolt action .410 shotgun last November. It was missing the clip. has slight surface rust. and has a few scratches on the stock. I managed to find a clip for it. Now I am wondering would it be worth more if I refinished it or just left it alone. I think a little steel wool and balistol will cure most of the rust. and a slight sand and refinish on the stock will fix it to. Their aren't any deep scratches or anything that would require alot of hard/deep sanding. But does this natural patina add to the value, or would it be better restored to close to its natural off the shelf beauty. By they way, he gave 25$ for the gun. And its value for a good one by the book's/market is 100-150$. I'd say its in fair condition at the moment.
