While I can appreciate some folks penchant for factory originality... It seems that the only way to keep a gun in such condition is to never fire it. As soon as the start getting used they begin to develop wear marks. If carried, they take knocks, and dings. Some folks call this character. Taken further I don’t doubt that owners then, just as today liked to make little mods, or personalizations to their guns just to “make it their own”, and to separate theirs from everyone else’s.
