Wise words. The quickest way to reduce value is in trying to "enhance it".24th series Kokura. It may or may not have a chrome bore. It should be shootable. Check to verify matching numbers. Clean the bore to get a good assessment of the bore condition. Leave the outside alone. You can wipe it down with some oil. Don't be aggressive.
Jeep: I have done electrolysis with Civil War artifacts and it does an excellent job removing rust, and it is very simple to do using a car battery charger.you could try electrolysis I have been reading about it. it seems to work there are some youtube videos about it to. what I have seen is it removes the rust and leaves the finish untouched. I am thinking of trying it. has anyone on here tried it?
cool is it that hard to set up it does not look to bad on youtube? does it remove the rust like it says?Jeep: I have done electrolysis with Civil War artifacts and it does an excellent job removing rust, and it is very simple to do using a car battery charger.
However, in the OP's case, he might be better off using some 0000 fine steel wool and gun oil and going that route instead.
x2, I don't know why people say this is a bad method. I have used it for 15 years and it does not hurt the bluing or scratch metal surfaces.I would use 0000 steel wool and light gun oil, rub the long way. I will remove rust and not damage the blue. You will be supprised and happy with results.
The set up is really simple, although the electrical attachment can vary depending on what the object is and its shape. Take a socket bayonet for example, you can use just the battery clamps off the charger for this. Its been 9 months ago that I did this, but if I'm remembering correctly you use the positive clamp on the bayonet, and then you clamp the negative clamp onto a clean piece of steel that must be submerged in water with some dish washer detergent (powder type soap) mixed in for electrical flow. When you turn on the charger the positive cable is sending current into the bayonet loosening the rust. The rust then is drawn by the negative clamp to the steel rod where it builds up around the steel rod. You cannot let either object touch each other and both must be separated apart by 4 or more inches apart.cool is it that hard to set up it does not look to bad on youtube? does it remove the rust like it says?
