    I know it's been discussed before. But I've forgotten. What way does the best job for cleaning up a pigeon grade metal finish on a Browning? Thanks, Jim

    I think the concensus was the Nevr-dull treated cotton was best with all the nooks and crannies

    13 year old Browning Ultra XS Skeet. Always used Flitz and a coating of rust pruff. And yes I know the receiver is actually silver nitride and gold inlay Ric

    Nevr-dull or Flitz work really well. Scrubbing required.

    I bought an Ithaca Century trap about a yr. ago. The receiver and front iron were filthy. I was in the garage and found a can of gasket remover (Permatex). I tried it rubbed it with an old toothbrush and it came out like new. Don't get it on the wood. Mike.
