Re: Heavy rust on old airgun

Re: Heavy rust on old airgun

ok ok ... I got the message. :) Not worth the € and time.

Im going just to try to take the rust out, I saw the youtube guy using a batery charger to do some magic, maybe i'll try that. Maybe fun to try e no € to spend.
If I get any decent result maybe I'll budget the parts I need.
