Yeah it definitely was!! Thankfully it was just dust and not rust.
And it's not even field stripped completely! But good enough for cleaning.
I read somewhere there are like 67 parts total in a Winchester lever action.
The only parts I didn't remove are the cartridge guides and loading gate.
A schematic lists 65 but doesn't take into account the doubles of some parts, like the buttplate screws.
Nice looking gun! When you reload I highly suggest the hornady FTX bullets as they are designed for lever 30-30s. They have a pointed tip but its rubber to prevent setting off primers in the tube. They give a better BC without risking primers setting off in the magazine tube
It's probably not going to see any field use.
I had one but it was stolen back in 1981. I have been on the lookout for a good one for years. Its hard to find a good one. If you do they want to much money for them. My son found one that has the black chrome finish they used only one year. Its not a pre 1964 but in good shape.
That really sucks!
I was looking at them on gunbroker the other day......some of the prices are insane!!
It seems prices of any rifles/shotguns with the Winchester name on them have gotten out of hand the last few years.
ah ok, if I have a gun, its gonna get shot
Oh I didn't say it's not going to get shot lol. I'm just probably not going to take it hunting. The 30-30 is an awesome round for deer......it just doesn't compare to this one
Oh ok, I like to use the FTXs for all mine all the time because they group tighter and stay accurate longer. I mostly hunt with my .223 though.
Are you planning on shooting elephants? That thing makes the 30-30 round look like a .22.
What H@)) is that. For deer under a couple hundred yards da ol thudy thudy would be my choice unless I was real fond of burgers
I'd forget the steel wool, like others said it'll take off the bluing. Use some Kroil and a ChoreBoy pure copper cleaning pad. It'll take off the rust and not remove the bluing. Go easy and slow. Then go shoot the crap out of it. Nice rifle, I have my late father's old model 94 in .32 special.
With a round of that size looks like you will be safe in the event of a charging woolly mammoth out there in the deep woods of PA.
