I hate to say it but yes a re-blue will lower the value. Collectors like to see the original patina. But the choice is up to you. If you are like me and can't stand looking at a ugly gun you can send it to a well known finisher like Fords in Florida. Its just money and after spending a month getting a gun to function smoothly I would want it to look good. But then most of mine are war guns that have no collector value.
