Pitting in barrels

Just cleaned a 100 year old colt 32 that looked like a smooth bore when I started. Many hours later I see crisp lands and grooves but LOTS of pitting.
Not too shocked given the condition I started...

Second clip/spring

Take care. . Second clip on top with tab cut/filed can come loose and may interfere with bolt when you try to remove or install.

45 grain cci

I have used the Federal AE "suppressor" 45 gr. For 3 years in a Rem 580 and a Savage MKII fvsr with very good results.

Remington 580

Info like this is exactly why I lurk around here!
My 580 really has spoiled me in that I can't imagine anything too much better. . . I am the limiting factor not the 580!

Accuriser cost about $10.00, fits like a glove, works great and looks a little better than home made.

Patchs work ok on a Parker Hale jag...

Another vote for Savage MKII.
I bet more expensive brands are as good or better, but as I have stated in the past value is important ro me.

Update o Blazers

Forgot to add both guns are equipt with BSA Sweet 22. Rem has the 3-9, Savage has 6-18. Another vote for inexpensive hardware that does 90% of costly stuff. Call me cheap. . Come out shot me.
