As you can see the rust is difficult to keep off. I bought the gun years ago. The gentleman I purchased it from (Have known him for years) bought it from a guy who had stored 10 in a bank box. According to the gentleman I bought it from it had never been fired and I have never shot it. The not shot part is starting to really bother me. After seeing all the nice HP's on this site its really starting to get my blood going!
