I didn't think we had any steel wool in the house but I found some. The Bolt I though was rusted pretty bad...but I got it back to shinyness....albeit a bit dark..but it's enjoyable to look at now so...I'll keep the bolt....I thought it was scrubbed.
Literately this rifle looks like it was thrown in the back of a closet to rot...and someone turned it in 2 days ago to the gun shop to get some tax cash.
Well I bought it on tax day and I'm going to bring this baby back to life if I can.
I need to find a local gun smith to help me with it and get his ideas. Anyone know any good ones in Alabama?
I have no idea how to work on the sights myself I'm a scrub nub.
Here's some quick Before After Pictures I came up with.
Probably can't tell but now the bolt handle is more shiny...it was a dark brown before
The Duck Tape goo is now gone! TY solvent...looked like boogers when I got it off.
