    I have an old High Standard Double Nine revolver that belonged to my Dad - photo in this tread http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?s=&threadid=27451
    How are these finished? Is it parkerized?
    It shows a lot of holster wear and I'm considering having it redone. I'm really not concerned about a new finish affecting the value, it's a sentimental piece that I don't plan to get rid of and from what I've been able to find out it's not all that valuable anyway.

    The Double Nine's were blued steel, with anodized aluminum parts.

    A re-blue for the steel won't be too hard to find, but trying to find someone to re-do anodizing is tough.
