Let it be or polish?

Last year I had my dream supper stocker made with no finish just raw brass. After a year the brass has begun to dull. I like the look of it. I have polished the bore but am thinking of leaving the outside alone. Will this cause any damage in the long run? Will the gun start to pit? It's an awesome gun I'll never want to get rid of. It's everything I loved about the old P68Sc plus more. I'd like to keep it in good condition. A scratch earned on the field is love but damage from neglect is a sin.

If you don't polish it, nothing will happen to it. You can just let it patina overtime if that is what you prefer.

Here is your image just so save people from clicking:


As for me, I prefer nice polished shiny brass gun so I always clean up and polish mine.

I like the ever changing look. You can polish it and if you don't like it let it dull and patina.

no damage is possible. Just do whatever you like for looks. I like it patina personally.

Thanks guys. For now I'm going to let it be. If I want it to shine I can always polish it.

I'd do the same, I like the "patina'd" look with brass
