Default Model M-26 1955 TARGET

New guy here and not sure if this is the right spot. I just received a M-26 with 6.5" barrel. 1955 TARGET. I don't know much about this model. Ser# is S 2075XX. Can anyone tell me when it was built and what grips would have been on it from the factory? It now has aftermarket rubber grips and I wold like to get it back to original. I can't seem to find much information on this model. Also I'm interested in an approximate value even though I'll never sell it. I'm thinking of chamfering the cylinder to make reloads faster. Would that decrease it's value?

Also I have a Model 15 in blue that needs refinishing. Is there anyone in the Phoenix aria who does hot bluing that you could recommend? Thanks Jim
