About 50 years ago a bolt of lightning struck the ground right behind me as I was walking out of a theatre to help a gal get her car started. I heard the crash, and the hair on the back of my head...

First time I ever used RB-17 was in the bore of a 92 Winchester .32-20 that appeared to have no rifling at all. So I tried the RB, and all this grey crap was coming out after bronze brushing, and...

It's great for lead removal and as a general bore cleaner and rust remover.
However, if left in a barrel too long, or on the surface, RB-17 will cause rust. :eek: Overnight is fine, but I wouldn't...

I highly recommend this product - RB-17 Gel. It dissolves lead quite readily. I have

The Gunsmitherô Block will work just fine, as the 77/.22 uses the same barrel wedge block as a 10/22.

Talking 1950 Plymouth Coupe, same age as me.

Paid $50 for it in 1967. Rolled that Black Beauty on an icy incline, with bald tires, as a result of trying to avoid an oncoming Coca Cola delivery truck.

We were spinning around, and flipped over...

A 39A Bolt can be fitted to a 97 I believe; still available? If you can find one, it should fit. Did that years ago to a very early Marlin.

Other parts from a 39A may be adaptable, not sure. Best...

The .20 cal brushes / mops have a 5/40 thread; same as .17 cal, at least the ones I've used. 8/32 is the standard .22 cal, so I think you'll need an adaptor if someone

Peep sights!

Go with the Skinners, or Williams receiver sights.

Way better for old eyes, or young ones for plinking.

Scott Volquartsen says -

"It is machined from aluminum and then Type III hard anodized."

Kind of fingered that's what it were. Hope it holds up from pounding the end of the barrel!
