    There's been some ill-advised suggestions on this thread, but this one still had me shaking my head......

    Don’t do anything to it. And get it appraised by a Colt appraiser. No other appraiser matters. It could be $1000 gun or a $20,000 from the looks it appears to be very well worn. And that drops value considerably. Any paperwork at all is a huge plus.

    I got tired of buffing my antique firearm years ago.

    This is my rifle and this is my...

    Oh, did I misunderstand?

    By hand with a cotton rag and oil. I said nothing about a buffing wheel.

    I think most people would refer to that as wiping a gun down, not "buffing".

    More like scrubbing. A couple of hours of vigorous rubbing, wiping, buffing, scrubbing, stroking what the f ever you want to call it, while watching a movie or something makes a world of difference on old and corroded.
