I picked one up today in near excellent condition, $150. There's some slight rust in the bore. Do I just scrub it with hot soapy water and a bore brush, or what ?? I know how to do the cleaning rod thing to determine rate of twist. But since it won't do a complete revolution in the length of the barrel, is there a better trick available ?? It is a copy, ALMOST of a Hawken. With brass furniture. I want to turn it into a subdued Hunter. Any recommendations on how to tone down the brass (forend cap, trigger guard, and patch box) ?? Maybe sand, prime and paint a "browned color ?? Any help is mucho appreciated guys !! I bought a package of 10 each round balls with patches, conicals, and sabots to try it out. It uses No 11 caps and I understand that FFg is the way to go ?? Pics to follow !!
