Ding! Ding! Ding!

DJ 28 you are the winner.
I soaked it in Kerosene for 3 days. No change even with some light tapping.
I know three days isn't much so I was going to put it back in it's bath.

I was reading through this thread and saw the idea of boiling it. That made sense. It could liquify the old grease/oil.

So i put it in a pan of boiling water for about 5 minutes.

Took it out with a tongs and let it cool on a cloth.
Tapped it a few times and then.....

.....tried to move the slide and she went!

I would guess the kero and tapping helped loosen things up but the boiling water did the trick.

I have a shooter!!!

Thanks guys.
