    I love stories of restoration and redemption. Nice work!
    I have some .32 Special ammo if you need some, I only have my '94 in 30-30

    Thank You Berto. I would love to, but it's impossible to ship it across the border without being export licensed. I appreciate your offer though.

    Berto and Nestor should meet at the border, one holding the gun, the other loading the ammo, but neither item crossing. All shots would have to land just slightly inside the US, by an 1/8". And the gun would need to stay just slightly inside Canada, by 1mm.

    I'm no lawyer but seems like it would be perfectly legal :)

    Worth trying. What could possibly go wrong?
    I have a cop friend up that way to run interference....

    What was the procedure for cleaning the bore and barrel?

    Very nice. If I ever buy another rifle it will probably be a 94.

    Bore cleaner, pull through brass brush, lot of elbow grease and couple of rounds....follows by another cleaning. It appears to be in much better shape now.

    Thank You Gents. I'm working on the WW2 S&W wood panels now. It's a bit different kind of a challenge. Restoring the grips without making them look new. In fact making them look old is what I am after.
