For the data list.......

I just saw an Imperial marked Frommer-STOP for sale today.
It is serial number 82633. Fractur D.

The bad news is that it is re-blued. (However, the bolt and the barrel were left in the white) There is pitting scattered over the piece, some alittle deeper, some more like just freckling.
Also, it is missing the lanyard loop.

The good news is that it was not buffed or polished before blueing.
I don't know how old the re-blue is.
The wood grips appear to be in original condition.

The price is $150.
What's the feeling regarding this piece and it's relative price?

Regards, Ned

Ned-

Personally, I'd hold out for a better condition piece.
The price of $150 is pretty much low enough to justify
buying it just as a shooter grade gun. If it would be
nice enough in appearance to join your pistol display,
you can't go too far wrong to add this one to the rest.

I passed up a nicely preserved Imperial proofed Menta
for even less money about three years ago because it
had a cracked grip. I have been seeking another and
regretting my decision pretty much ever since. If a
gun 'speaks to you', you should usually listen to it!

regards,
rich

Rich,
I'm problaby going to let this one slide by. I have two of the Imperials, and I normally avoid a re-blued anything.
I was debating as to whether the re-blue was a military reblue, or a commercial job.
Thanks for the advice.
Regards, Ned
