    If it wasnít caked in nicotine, I would. I doubt Iíll be able to get the smell out of the sling.
    The scope should clean up fine and is pretty dang clear. A nice find, for sure.

    You may be interested to see that the Eddystone with this serial number shows up in the SRS. Doesn't tell you anything about your rifle but a neat happenstance anyway.
