I wish I still had it. It didn't follow me up when we moved and I think it even still had a little lube in it. Haven't seen one like it since.
Dang!! That's definitely a man cave decoration "par excellaunce" !

70% Isopropyl alcohol followed with a good oil after the alcohol has evaporated is simple and has worked for me for years.
Keep the alcohol off the stock wood. Over time, it will fade the finish.
Don’t forget to wipe down the ramrod.
Ballistol diluted down to about one part Ballistol to 6 parts Ballistol is good too.

Do you clean guns for a living? I can see your business card now...........................Have Hoppe's...... Will Clean


:ghostly: Cleaning guns for a living is on par with washing dishes for a living. I like to eat (too much) just like I enjoy shooting, but constant cleaning? :doh:
