Well I guess you can remove rust with a chainsaw if you have the skills, but most gunsmiths will tell you bronze wool is safer on gun blue. It's softer than steel. I've used a nickle on tough spots...

I ended up with a pre war S&W K22 that had been neglected over the years. After soaking in Ed's Red (ATF, kerosine, and mineral spirts) for a couple days, a nickle and bronze wool cleaned it up...

Steel wool will very easily remove original finish. Bronze will will not. That has zero to do with the process of rust bluing and carding.

I'd use bronze wool before steel wool. Bronze wool will remove rust, but won't remove original blue unlike steel wool.

"The gunshop said it's worth..." is an old sellers ploy. In my opinion, that's a $150 gun at best.

Very true. I've seen what some what were once very nice pistols pitted from being stored in leather holsters over the years.

I'd say with a little oil and elbow grease it might clean up some. If the numbers match and the price is right it might be a good one to pick up.

If your bayonet is permanently attached, it sounds like you have an M44. They're heavy little rifle, but dependable and accurate enough for their intended purpose.

From the photos, it could be Lemon oil, furniture polish, or some other oil just slathered all over the wood and metal. To some it makes it look "nice". I'd have to see in person to be sure.

My pick is the Luger, the P38 was a better pistol, but the Luger is the most classy.

I'm not aware of anyway to enhance the writing, but I'll be interested in what others have to say. I've ran into a few things over the years that I'd have like to have been able to read as well.
