I don't buy many guns anymore, but when I was buying regularly, I considered rarity, condition and price on anything offered. That is why i own several guns that others may have turned their noses up at. An example is my .32 Automatic. Less than a thousand made. Mine is refinished, probably in chrome, and with non-original grips. Usually I would not look at a non factory refinish, especially in chrome, but I was unlikely to find one in good original condition that I could afford, so I bought it. It fills a gap in my accumulation until some thing better that is in my price range comes along.
