May I ask one more question? I am a Ruger collector with minimal knowledge of PPKs.

Regarding re-bluing, are there some tell-tale signs to watch for??-

I would really appreciate some guidance.

Thanks.

One of the most obvious is the roll marks. If the edges look rounded and not sharp and crisp the gun has probably been re-blued. The depth of the roll marks will also look shallow.

If you've found one that you're considering buying, I'd find a picture on the web of a new one, and print it out. Then take it with you and compare it to the one you're looking at.

Is this gun at a dealer or is it a private sale?
