Default ? for you Manurhin - knowledgeable folk

Were any MR73 revos brought here in either matte-blue, or possibly parkerized finishes? That would be a quick and dirty way to refinish an import which may otherwise show a lot of finish wear.

A lot of the police issue MR73s were refinished as you describe. The original finish is a brighter blue. I believe the refinishing was done by the agencies in France that used them and not by the importer.
