Matrix, you may or may not be surprised at the conditions some guns are in when brought to me. I have two in the shop right now that were found in a barn and nobody knows how long they've been there. Pretty much the same story as yours. I always soak them in Kroil. I think it's the best penetrating oil on the market. If possible I'd disassemble the gun first then give it a good 24 to 48 hour soak in kroil. Then clean as you would normally and you'll be able to tell which parts can be salvaged and which can't. Then it should just be a matter of replacing whatever is needed and refinishing. George
