    This is a question more for who is in charge of the giveaways.

    I have a liberty scout .22 from west germany.
    Dismanteld. and in storage for the past 14 years.

    When you cocked it, It would not revolve the cilenders. Why ? Don't know.
    It has serfice rust on it, so it needs re blueing.

    I thought about donating it for the next drawing or even this on if i still have time.

    Here is a pic if you think it would be a good idea I'll send it of to Shooter 45.
    Or I can give it to who ever At the TX TFF BBQ.

    Just let me know if it's a ya or na.

    I know it's in some rough shape. but all the parts ar there.

    if i was more local i'd take your box o parts and give it a whirl and if it came up a decent shooter then pass it to Sam


    you'd have to find someone there that'd do likewise

    and give it that extra going over as its to be given away

    cant give away dangerous stuff eh

    get someone good onto it and for sure ..

    but i'd do it with what i have here so no cost

    i cant speak for anyone else

    that would not be a cheap resto .. $50 -$100 maybe ( if you did not already have the gear, chem's etc)

    and the time and from this pic, time will be a investment

    a good couple solid days and maybe some more

    whoa.

    i'm in Australia

    land of gun control and taxes

    ok i have to import based on what i will send it back as , or do it as a perminant import which aint cheap and can be rejected easy ..., so $300 AUD say..

    on that i will pay a $45 per weapon inspection fee, because this is parts , they may need to consult to check it cant me made into a MG or similar ( yeah .. i know .. but its here remember this is how they play , is fee fare ( lawfare ) )) and thats extra

    then theres the duty on all weapons based on the $300 add's $150 and we aint even got started yet on GST or state duty or nothing yet

    as stated if i was more local to you , but i aint and the barrier aint the pacific but the damned UN BS rules fee's and taxes involved with anything to do with a gun here ..

    if obozo gets 4 more , you'll find out ...

    If you want me to restore it I will do it for free as long as it is given to TFF for a giveaway.
    Just PM me and I will give you my address.

    I think it's a great idea!! Before and after pics..Yummy.
    And, I have zero personal interest ( unless you count the fact that I'd like to win it :) ).

    i almost bet that the revolving problem stems from the tension spring that is on the back of the arm that does the turning of the cylinder. had one that did the same thing and that spring was broke. fixed it for less than a dollar.worth a shot

    Bring it to the TFF BBQ. All it needs is a handspring. Last one I fixed I made the handspring from a piece of hacksaw blade.

    It wouldnt be nuttn to fix it and get it shootn.

    I hear ya JLA but i think I'm going with goofy.
    I supply the item, he restores it and we both get to make some one's day when they win it.

    I have faith that you could fix it.
    I already told goofy i would do it.
    And I keep my word. the onlything in this world no one can take from a person.

    I just got the gun today and there is a couple of parts missing.
    1st is the trigger and bolt spring then there is the grip screw bushing,ejector tube bushing(it's bad) and last is the safety bar spring and ball.
    But all is not bad NUMRICH has most of them.
    But now to see if the loose barrel is due to the pin or the barrel?
    Alum. frame and trigger guard is scratched up pretty bad and the barrel has some pitting.
    Thought I would show you all the different stages of getting it back to the range.
    Mike
    PS. Thanks for the work time2shoot this is going to be fun.
    Nothing like sinking time and money into a $50 gun.
    Bringing back the dead is cool:D
    PSS. This is NOT going to be ready for Mays drawling but look for it for June.

    Sir Goofy, I eagerly await your updates on this project! I hope to learn something in the process. By the way, those are pretty nice looking grips - not quite to Carl's standards, but I like the color and grain!
