We will get back to you in a few days.
Things to do and not do:
- Oil, don’t clean unless you know how!
- Soak in oil to mitigate rust, Don’t sand, use steel wool.
- Do not take an historical piece and have it re-blued! (refinishing kills collectible value)
- Do not alter or shorten the stock or barrel, or change the actions in any way.
- Do bring it to our monthly meeting and get instructions from experts.
- Always make sure antiquities are clear of powder, projectiles and shells before transporting.
(if you are unsure, send a picture and your phone # we will have a person call you and walk you through the process.)
