Also been using hot water for years. Use as hot water as you can stand, you want it to evaporate as quickly as possible. My bp revolvers I used to put in the oven on a low heat for about 1/2 an to make sure they good and dry. (then I got married no more guns in the oven).

I have been using "Bore Butter" inside the barrel and "Rem-oil" on the outside of my rifle.

By the way the crown goes inside you not rifle!

Ya, don't you dare abuse crown by putting it in your gun! That would be the most expensive solvent ever!

I have the same gun. I use hot soapy water. I do not use any type of modern cleaning solvents on mine. And I do take it apart when I clean it.

I am going to leave the Crown thing alone. I was really just funning, no intentions of offending anyone...stupid joke I guess. I think I still want to take it apart for this initial cleaning/inspection, I tried to look to see if there is any corrosion, but it's so dang dark in there. Also, when I get something I am unfamiliar with, I like to dig into it and understand it. Been working on that for 27 years with the wife and I have come to realize just how consistently stupid I still am. Hopefully this BP stuff won't be quite so complicated once I dig into it.

Ok well now I really feel stupid, well I guess a little smarter now. I pulled the wedge and lifted the barrel off as instructed. Not sure what I was thinking but I really thought I was going to be able to look through it like a "normal" gun barrel - duh. So how do I know if this barrel is good or corroded or just exactly what it's condition is?

No reason to feel stupid.

I would spray some gun oil down the barrel and run a patch down the barrel and see what you have. If the bore is fouled it will come out black. If it comes out red then you have some rust and may want to look into pulling the breach plug if this model has one.

If it is a small amount of red I would clean it with a bore brush of the proper size and then the bucket of very hot water. Then use the oil of your choice to coat the barrel, like I said I have been using "Bore Butter", I can't remember who makes it right now. Just give it a quick cleaning before you shoot.

They are fun to shoot and they make lots of smoke.

Well things have gotten weird on this deal. I took the barrel off as you know and noticed a name inscribed in the wood what would be under the barrel. So, I did a little google search and found it belonged to a 24 year old boy who died a couple weeks ago. And the next search item was a news clip about him being stabbed to death. They have caught the killer so it is not an unsolved case, but I suspect the family would appreciate the boys gun back.

Yeah , thats a bit on the weird side. Might give the parents a call . Hell chances are they may have never even known he had it, but I would still give them a call . Your gun though and your not obligated to do so .

I have a call into the dad. I don't think I want it. The boy was 24 years old and I figure as old as the gun may be - it likely could have been a present.

As much as I hate to give up a gun(I have never sold one) I think you might be right on this.

Do you know who you bought it from? Was it maybe a member of his family, or God forbid a member of the killers family? Not trying to be a jerk here just thinking out loud.
