I always read these discussions with keen interest. I have a K32 that has considerable finish wear and a bubba ground front sight. I have a replacement sight, and have debated having this gun restored,. I have a K22 and. K38, both in very good condition, and I'd like the K32 to look the same. Now to those who say sell it and buy a better one, have you looked at K32 prices lately?. I have $1150 in my K32. If I spent $600 to have it restored, I have a hard time believing I couldn't sell that piece for $2000, when good original ones are selling for twice that .. I know it won't be original, but in the current condition, it will never be a true collector piece, now will it? And since selling it will be my son's concern, why do I care.

If I was confident I could get a Turnbull type restoration, I would do so. Based on some of the changes I've heard about at Ford's I'm not sure about using them. So for now, my K32 stays ugly.
