Looking for the information on the restored rusted garand
 
A few months back there was a thread on the old board about a very rusted (relic type) M1 garand.

The original poster used eletrolisis or something to eliminate the rust and restore the rifle.

I have some items I'd like to experiment with and need the information.

can anybody help?

You might find that info back at the old forum. It will let you look at old posts.

Thats what I'm after. Thanks guys.

My father got some old tools at a yard sale and I have some rusty parts to try also. I'm going to do some reading and give it a try.


Thanks!
