    Wow - after 11 years too.

    The guy did a remarkable job of restoration and in a sense that is in part a tribute to his Dad, who obviously meant so much to him. Almost uncanny where it was found too.

    That says a lot about stainless steel. I wonder if the cylinder's metal was a little lesser quality stainless?

    I had a friend bring me a Taurus .357 blued revolver that he had left in his LEAKY car trunk for about 18 months. It was NOT recoverable!

    That's a great story.

    Even with the corrosion, I find it amazing they left the "live" rounds in the gun during transport and storage. I guess they could have been stuck and it was easier to pull the cylinder off...

    People are more violently opposed to fur than leather because it's safer to harass rich women than motorcycle gangs.
