I have a Pre-64 lever action Winchester that's been handed down and handed down, so there are some
nicks and scrapes on the stock/foregrip. Would it de-value the gun if I was to have it sanded
and refinished? Although I plan on keeping, I still want it to look nicer.

Personal preference. I have one that's pretty beat, but it's a 1946 manufacture and all the scars mean something to me on account of the previous owners...an heirloom.

Chicks dig scars, and scars on an old rifle are equally cool.

Yes, unless it is a pure beater it would devalue the gun. Folks who want them want them in original condition.

Thanks. It's not really in that bad of shape considering it's age. Someone back in the family did decide to
put a butt pad on it, so recently found the right plate and put it on there.

Every scar has a story. You may never know the story but its there.

Does pre-64 on a lever action have the same ramifications as a pre-64 model 70?

Just curious

I would like to have a lever gun
