OK, "my" opinion, like a butthole, everyone has one and some stink
Refinishing adds no value to "me", and actually if it were for sale I would lowball you on it due to the refinishing. It's the way it came, the way it left, shows it's history. Yea, I'm one of those who like beat to death weapons, and are against this treatment. Personaly if I want a pretty gun, I'll go and buy a pretty gun. To me the fluff and buff ain't gonna do anything to make it function better, or more accurate, it's pure eye candy, so people at the range don't say "what a nasty looking rifle". I just tell them I don't need beautiful to boost my self esteem about shooting
In the end you bought it, its yours, do what ever you want. Like a pig, you can dress her in heels and a nice dress, but at the end of the night, she's still a pig.
