    My wife's grandpa passed away a week ago (RIP) and some of his WWII and police stuff was given to me. Among them this Crossman 38T pellet gun. I was told by my father in-law (grandpa's son) that when he started in the police (he later left and joined the army) they made them train with this type of guns first before the real ones. This one is metal (don't know what kind, I'm a complete ignorant when it comes to guns, though I like their design a lot) and very heavy. I haven't opened it yet to see the insides but it seems to work. I'll have to see if it shoots the pellets.
    It has some wear and I think that gives it character. There was a receipt inside as well.

    I had a 38T in the late 70's when I was in high school. Unfortunately I dropped it and the hammer broke. It shot well and had the heft and feel of a real handgun. As I recall, the only down side of it was that the velocity fell off quickly because the CO2 bottles got cold and lost pressure when you fired it rapidly.

    Any advise on how to restore some shine to a black revolver?

    A very light coating of gun oil should do the trick. Just don't put any on the grips.

    Are you able to send a decent picture of the revolver? It may never have had a 'shiny' finish, or possibly the black finish (blueing) has been worn of and needs to be redone. "Flitz" polish has served me well, but be advised that it is an abrasive (like toothpaste) and needs to be used sparingly and GENTLY.

    Here's a quick phone shot. I know nothing about it (or about guns for that matter), it was another of my wife's grandfather (RIP) that he left to me. It seems to be a blank gun as the barrel is solid. The gun seems to be covered in some sort of sticky grease and that is making the metal look matte. I'd like it to look a little bit smoother, if that makes sense.

    You can see here how the cylinder looks matte, cloudy, like it needs to be polished...

    Also, and forgive my ignorance again, what would happen if I shoot a dummy bullet with a blank gun?
