    Looking to add a solid rib 42 to my collection and I need some ideas as to paying more for a pristine gun compared to a shooter gun, most of the guns I have are not what I would call safe queens but I can now afford a few of these better condition guns. Long term which grade will appreciate more? Also what would be the value of a mid 1930's solid rib 3",field grade, good condition, stock has been cut and had a pad added, blueing is worn to silver on the wear areas, I would call a shooter grade gun?

    The worn gun, at a fair price, is the best deal. The pristine solid rib prewar gun will sell on the collector market for multiples of the price of the field worn gun with cut stock. "Paying More", in this case, means paying a lot more.
