I read all the FAQís and posts here I could but never found a definitive answer to my question. Yes, there were Damascus and I suppose some were blued, or blackened per request but nothing here has confirmed that. Iím not sure where this answer would come from unless you worked there. The 1906 hammer gun Iím restoring was blackened, or appeared to be, when I received it and I had no idea it was Damascus until I began removing it. Certainly someone along the way could have done this, but the family says no way. The grandfather purchased this originally and the father has had it in his attic since he inherited it. Now the grandson wants this restored to present to his dad. I appreciate your response David. |
