Ideas to restore this abused gun (I got for free)
A friend of mine had to urgently move to California, and just gave me this gun. It's a Argentine Military Ballester Molina .45 ACP. It hasn't been shot in 15 years, and was made in the early 1940's.
When I got it, there were cob web's & a dead spider in the barrel. You can see the rust & corrosion around the trigger, and there is some more where the hammer hits the firing pin.
It's kind of a cool gun with some history. So i'd like to restore it if I can. Anyone have any idea's besides a good cleaning and new grips?
I've never restored a gun before, so I am excited about experimenting with this one. Ideas are welcome.
