That turned out good, it looks natural.  It looks like it was taken care and cleaned over the years but got a few coffee stains on it.  But not too bright that it looks like it was replated.
Ride and Have Fun

Thanks. Funny thing is, it would have been a breeze if I was going for a nice polished look. 
 
A collector with any experience will know right away that the band isn't an original but just the same I'm adding a note under the forearm saying that the original band was missing when the gun came to me and when this band was added.  I don't intend to ever get rid of it but after I'm dead and gone it might matter.

Wow, that is impressive. I don't have a way to tell what the fps is on my 1940 Red Ryder but maybe another member will jump in with the info on their early RR. Al

One quick and dirty test is to shoot the bottom of a steel tin can at point blank with the can on a solid surface. Don't rest the muzzle on the can, an inch away is fine. I use a lot of Del Monte canned goods so those are what I use. The thickness is around 0.0085". If the BB splits the metal, you're around 320 fps. If it fully pierces the bottom it's around 400 fps. Obviously use eye protection and keep away from windows, pets, kids, et cetera.

I wrote that down and will use that test as soon as I can find a can. Thanks, Al
