Picked up a very nice Model 1886 Lebel from a Marine who got it in Afghanistan. :) Two minor problems with it. It's missing a stacking hook and it's missing a screw that keeps the innards together, apparently. Picture attached. Does anyone know of where I can find this screw or has a spare?

Also... the action's kinda rusty. Any advice for its removal when I clean her up?

To remove the rust use a brass or bronze brush with oil. Original stacking hooks are not available I believe there was some one making a reproduction but I'm not sure. Lebel parts are difficult to find.
