You might try spraying it good with brake parts cleaner or gunscrubber and let it go at that. Just be sure to remove the stock first, as that stuff won't do the wood any good.

LZZ= Feb 1953. The only problem with such an early one is that it is not grooved for a scope. However you can attach a base or bases for a scope using JB Weld, Loctite Black Max or even Shoe Goo. ...

The basic design goes back to the John Browning-designed M1900, which morphed into the M1902, M1904, through the M58,59,60, and on up to the M67. See if this schematic of the M1900 helps you any: ...

According to the Winchester Handbook (Madis, 1981), the Model 59 was a slightly modified version (longer barrel and heavier stock) of the Model 58. CFN Parts has a Model 58 trigger and...

According to an old Savage catalog (c. 1933) the M23A had a "rubbed varnish" finish. The later M23AA had an oil finish.

I'm by no means sure, but it sounds like the OP has one of the 3/4 inch side of barrel mounts. If that's the case, his options are very limited, as stated above. The old B4 and C4 Weavers left a...

That is a great price if it's in good or better condition. Again, I would want return privileges if it doesn't check out OK. I understand one thing to watch out for is a large screw in the bottom...

Yes, that does appear to be very early. You can find out the month and year by looking at the date code on the left rear of the barrel. Go to the sticky in the Remington 37/40X subforum and you can...

High velocity ammo came out about 1930, and soon thereafter most manufacturers began beefing up their rifles to handle the higher pressure and resultant backthrust. After about 1940 nearly any rifle...

That's not bad, but I think I would offer $250 and ask for return privileges in case there are any hidden issues. Make sure to take a good look at the bore first.

I think it's what they call economies of scale. The demand for shorts is nothing like it used to be, so the factories don't produce nearly as many of them. I would guess that 50-60 or more years...

If the bluing is that bad, I would pass or offer maybe $200-250. It's very unusual to have such poor bluing and very good wood together. That's a head scratcher.

It sounds like your rifle was "customized" by a previous owner. This was a fairly common practice in the 50s and 60s. You could probably remove them without much trouble, but I wouldn't let them...

It's a very fine rifle, well-designed, well-made, and usually quite accurate. It has probably the smoothest action of any of the pump .22s, and rarely does it have any functioning issues. They can...

They won't win any beauty contests, but the M74s are still fine rifles. I have two, and both are very accurate and dependable.
As you probably already know, don't cock it with the safety on.
