Nice find, it's in better shape than my pawn shop Glenfield 100G was. Some stock refinishing and metal TLC with 4-0 steel wool and oil, followed by a good touch up blue will work wonders. I have never heard of straight cut rifling, but have read about smooth bore .22's of differing brands here on RFC. Here are a few pics of mine before and after, the metal responded well to Brownell's Oxpho Creme touch up blue. Take pics before ,during, and after, we all like pictures. It will give you a lot of satisfaction when you have the old girl back in good shape again mechanically and cosmetically. Mine shoots very well.

Is it corrosion or lead? A few passes with bronze wool on a used bore brush will scrape leading out, if it's corrosion maybe an abrasive like JB Bore Brite would help a little. Found a Model 10 barrel here if you are interested.
