    Cylinder and Slide can do one of their Pathfinder models since the serial number is on the side of the frame.

    If the gun was cleaner I'd likely leave it alone and enjoy as is.

    Well, S&W forged internal, no-lock revolvers aren't rare either and have you seen the prices on them lately? But that out of the way, your gun looks to have what I call "honest wear". I.E. it ain't really hurt.

    If it were mine I'd detail strip it, probably send it out for dovetail cuts (if needed) and install some Dawson or Novak steel sights that would be a huge improvement, and polish it up and use Brownell's Oxpho Blue on it. Done right it'll look nice and will be easy to touch up when needed. That stuff is pretty good for cold blue. It won't look like that Ford's specimen you posted, but you won't feel guilty about carrying it or running it regularly either. I wouldn't be bashful about shooting it one bit. Just my [/twocents]

    Who did those sights?

    I look at every pistol as a base gun. Itís one of my character flaws

    I do too. At least to a certain extent.

    This gun caught my eye because of its worn condition and for the fact that I wouldn't be ruining a clean collector grade pistol by getting some work done.

    Were it mine, I wouldn't hesitate to refinish a T Series in that condition. Since it's not a collector grade example, I'd add good sights, a more usable safety, etc. The barrel feed ramp and chamber opening has obviously already been polished. If it functions reliably, I wouldn't worry about the "humped" feed ramp. I owned several T-Series guns, and still have one, with unthroated, unpolished feed ramps,etc. They all fed hollow points without issue. The S&W revolver sights mentioned are a practical addition to a Hi Power IMHO. I had three Hi Powers with S&W adjustable sights at one time or another. Wish I had photos, but that was before we took digital photos of everything and put them on the internet

    Any noted durability issues, etc? And what did you have for front sights?

    Something like a Smith rear paired with a gold bead front should make a nice classy combo. Plus I don't have a Hi Power with this sight combo so it would be different from my others.
