Me and my son found it in a barn. it was rusted moderately bad. the lever is stuck closed without anything in the chamber. we are trying to restore it.

Remove the stock and soak it in kerosene for a couple of weeks. If it doesn't free up soak it a couple of more weeks. It took two months to free up this 92 Winchester I dug up.

Agree with the "remove wood and soak", but instead of kerosene, find a product called KROIL. It is the best penetrating oil I have found. Once you get the action to where it will move, YES, the rifle will need to be detail stripped and cleaned.

If it's just lightly stuck you can spray it with Kroil and it might free it up but for a long soak kero is just as good and a whole lot cheaper.

a mixture of acetone and automatic transmission fluid works wonders.
