Is a missing mark on a 1922 Model 12 necessarily evidence that the gun has been reblued? Thanks for your insights.

No.

The Red Paint will and is often worn off with a little use.

But I would imagine if you look very closely, you’ll find a remaining speck or too. Then again some gun cleaning solvents can easily remove it.

Plenty of many other signs of a Re-Blue to look for.

Sincerely,

Maverick
