I don't think I'd agree with "at any price"... I would be interested in this for the right price. 10-11K doesn't seem too far off fro a shooter these days I was figuring it to be in the 8-10K range.
But, I intend to use it as a shooter. Leave the rare/unfirable stuff for Arthur et al.
I will re-ask the question - what amount do you de-value a 28 with a re-blue?
I assume it is now Blued - not reParkerized?
Thanks for the answers!

Exactly! It would seem that after a Savage 1928A1's orignal bluing was replaced by an application of original military parkerizing, it doesn't matter how many subsequent reparkerizings, or rebluings, the gun was subjected to when value is concerned.
Just because 90%+ condition Colt 1921/28's have orignal bluing and parts does not mean they are "unfireable". It is just that it seems unnecessary to further diminish the condition by burning up 1000's of rounds through it. Considering there are many examples of Savage, Bridgeport, and West Hurley 1928's whose value are not impacted by replacement of worn out parts from shooting, why take a chance with the few remaining Colts?'

Heck, pre-samples are selling for 8K now.

West Hurleys are going for tenK now!
Saw a 28 Savage last weekend at a local show for 16K with one mag!
My '28 A.O. Bridgeport was reblued by the previous owner. I got it VERY reasonable and I shoot the heck out of it!!
Depends on what you're looking for.
