Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

I hear you ... nice pickup!

Just bought a Navy Arms (made by Zoli) Zouave black powdah rifled musket for $175 and the lock inside and under the barrel was COVERED w/ cosmoline.

I had to laugh ... 1st time I’ve seen that! Then again, the lock dates to 1960 and overall the condition is mint!

if yours is anything like mine, that I bought years and years ago, just wait until you try to put the trigger group back in after taking it out to clean all the cosmoline out of it. fun times are to be had :D

I will tell you this, take the bolt completely apart and clean the snot out of it, it will be packed in cosmoline.
COOL IT WITH THE BOOM-BOOMS!! OVA-DAY!!
