I have experience with these and also Parkers and various muzzleloaders in all aspects of inspections and some repairs from refinishing to soldering ribs.This is not my first rodeo.The origional purpose was to inspect the barrel in the thin spot at the receiver.The old gun has some pitting at the muzzle on the outside probably from cleaning and fouling drips. It has lived in the South i.e.Moisture.It is a shooter but a nicer one.

Your experience with other guns may not always help on something you haven't worked on before.  I don't even want to remove a mag tube and I have had Winchesters since the 1950's.  Especially just for curiosities sake.  I hope all turns out well.

I like the mechanical aspect of these and other guns with gunsmithing problems .Its just another approach to the hobby.To each his own.
