    If the proper liquid method of lacquer removal is used, there should be no metal loss. And you would add the minor weight of the lacquer back in when re-applied. Remember, horns are occasionally chemically stripped and re-lacquered at the factory before initial retail shipment. Lacquer is there to protect the brass and performs a good function. The thing is, some very protected areas may receive double lacquer and of course engraving will be filled to some extent. Later.

      Mine just feels rather light. I don't know if it's a relaq, but some of the engraving is not as clear as other parts.
