Re: Butt plate question

I'll bet it's the same gun. I remember it had another problem or so ??. I saw it early and thought it abit overpriced but it did change hands to another dealer ... maybe F.A.B can confirm he was with me.

Re: Butt plate question

If it's the same rifle I saw at the Louisville gun show a month or so ago it most definitely has a chrome butt plate.

Re: Removing Oil Stains

Borrowed from another sight I frequent:

I use a hair dryer to facilitate oil removal. The heat causes the oil to come right to the surface rather quickly, and I wipe continually with a rag soaked with alcohol.

More drastic methods are out there if you case is extreme.
