The bore was the last thing I worked on last night. It cleaned up well and the rifling seems to be in good shape.
The metal components soaked in CLP overnight... I'm hoping a lot of the rust will easily scrub right off today.
I'm hoping that the rifle will be complete today! A kind gunboards member who is local stepped forward with the recoil lug and front trigger guard screw that I need... I'll be meeting with him in about an hour.
I still haven't found a method to clean the stock, but that'll be my project today.
After working on the stock, I'll carefully work on the rust on the metal components then reassemble it all and the rest will be history! I hope it all works out!!
I know my photos haven't been great, but based on them could anyone recommend a method for cleaning the stock? For most of it I think a quick wipe down with a rag soaked in warm water and dish soap...?
