Default Bore Pics -- Showing Off a Bit! W00T!


I got done cleaning out my Gewehr 88's bore. To check any work I do, I usually use macro pictures as well as magnifying tools.

This bore actually went back to almost-new condition. The rust that was on it hadn't penetrated too far down -- looks like it was maybe just there from sitting unprotected for a year in a gunshop, assumed to be a parts gun!

I am rather thrilled.

This means my rifle is in 95% or better condition -- on of the better ones out there -- and the bore is not nearly as bad as I thought!

The only problem is that it's not all matching, but no biggie. I probably wouldn't shoot it otherwise!

Not bad for $37.50, eh?


Is it better to live by a corrupt society's standards rather than face persecution for not doing the same? This is the dilemma we now face. We must hold fast to our convictions as we confront this dilemma. Knowing one's self goes a long way in the crisis. - Me

I think I see Carl Sagan.

ps: shooting an older bore sometimes aids in cleanliness too
Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery and is a gift.

Be Well.

That's great Josh.

Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams
