I have A Sako L579 244 Deluxe, and it's factory recoil pad is starting to deteriorate. I have found a reproduction sako recoil pad. Would I be lowering the value of this gun if i had the recoil pad replaced. Also would I be ruining the value of this gun if i had it refinished? the clearcoat is starting to form some faint cracks in it, and it also has a heavy scratch/ light gouge on it.
