I have a 1940 (42) luger that is in good condition but I would like to make it look better. First of all it's a shooter not a collector. My father brought it back from WW2 and it has a lot of sentimental value to me. I treat it with great respect. The surface is a little pitted from being in the holster for 58 years. I want to have re blue but is it possible to sand and somehow fill the pit marks before it gets dipped? Any info you can pass on about care, maintenance, refinishing and so on will be very welcome. I know about Mr. Still's book but with my work situation that will have to wait. I am looking very forward to getting his book some day!
