SO I picked up a 91/30 Nagant today. What I want to know is how can I be sure that the barrel isn't corroded? What do I look for?
I've been cleaning and there isn't as much dark junk coming out of it any more and it's allot easier to run the brush through....got allot smoother. Been shining a light through and it looks clean...thread is solid all the way...but the barrel isn't a mirror type of shine but it shines.
Just a bit worried...paranoid that some previous owner didn't clean it good after a shooting with the corrosive ammo.
Thanks in advance.
