Dear Traders.. sellers.
I have purchased 1/2 dozen rifles recently as i lost my license and i am now just filling my cert with some used rifles, some for me and some for a fellow friend. Now each gun i have initially picked up has been ok on the out side.
Pull the bolt out look down the barrel and there dirty, Now i can live with a bit of fouling and a bit of copper turning color .
But when you can not get a rod and patch down the bore, this must be getting on to Dangerous.
I am talking mainly used second hand rifles. Do gun shops ever clean a rifle on part exchange... a shotguns easy to clean.. but how many can honestly say they clean the bore of a rifle.. check the crown. and clean the chamber.. prior to selling.
