I recently purchased a KG date code M"ark" 23 used for a great price. It came with original camo carry case, horizontal Operator's Manual, and 7 magazines. The seller claimed that he was the second owner and had only shot it 50 times and stored it in his safe for the 5 years that he owned it. Looking at the gun, the slide and barrel (Maritime Finish) have plenty of scratches and paint missing. I contacted HK to see if they offered refinishing services and they declined. Is there anyone out there capable of refinishing the barrel and slide in the Maritime finish? I'm aware of the Hostile Environment finish process completed under the maritime coat as well. After browsing some forums I read into GrayGuns being referred for re-finishing services but saw nothing on their website relating to the Mark 23. I'd like for the gun to retain it's collector value, and I want someone who can refinish it while retaining the amber markings and serial numbers on the slide and barrel. Should I attempt to have it refinished? Or leave it as is?
