    I still think that's plated... If you get it just take a swipe with cold blue in a wide open place and see. You can always re polish it after.

    Looks like a coating of preservative too, should come clean. Nice trade.

    They don't seem to have a static line retrieval system...a tough haul on the deployment bags. The one little girl getting JM check at the nosedock would hang for a half hour under canopy, have to...

    I don't think so, if it were in the white it would rust with the fingerprints, mine would anyway. I still think it's chrome that hasn't been cared for, it'll rust like that too. Look at car...

    Nice rifle, I love the big ones like that, they shoot so mildly and accurately.

    Got to say, even back then the 14.5" barrel carbine was my favorite.

    I think the bore just needs copper out and a newish bore brush. Lots of elbow grease...I'd love to see the actual shade of the bore though. I'll bet there's nothing wrong. The pic of the crown...

    I've had a smaller version for decades now and used it lots. Ours were similar for field use, just a bit different. One pot with a frying pan lid. We had several different stoves in use at one...

    I understand...too bad. When we needed to, we'd sift ours with a fine strainer to get the most chunks out but there'd be nothing better than a fresh bag of glass beads in a clean cabinet.

    Honestly, if a glass bead blaster was available with silica glass beads you could clean the inside of both those easy. Clips and mags...

    Love to see some pics though. If it's dressed like a carbine and falls in the middle of a vast sea of rifle numbers...we should at least have a look?

    Yes, I did those also. My first driver's papers too. I didn't want to be a driver, they never got away from it. I wanted to stay in the line. I managed to stay away from driver wheeled until I...

    Don't know where you got that, I owned three from all three eras of manufacture and none of the many magazines had any oiling pads.
