    Hi:

    I have a 1925 Winchester Black Diamond. The stock could use a restoration to make this shotgun pristine.

    Will this lower or increase the value of the shotgun?

    Thanks for your comments,

    Dave

    Probably less value

    Even if done well

    However your pride of ownership will go up

    Stu Wright would be the obvious choice.

    Dave- I would first try a coat of Min Wax penetrating stain (apply with a rag and wipe off after 1 minute) followed by a hard wax. Automobile wax is good. You could be surprised and this treatment would not lower the value of the gun.
