Re: Born on date?

THANK YOU SIR! verified by a very nice Lady at Remington today. She said early 1914. as a noob to this early a rifle what should I do ...clean with Kroil or Remoil... she has some surface rust... was found under insulation in an attic upstate NY. Would a thorough going over by a gunsmith be in order...
