    It removes the rust but the pitting is still there. No way to get rid of that other than removing metal with files and sandpaper.

    Electrolysis works well, I have used it a couple times!

    Oven cleaner is great for removing years of Wisconsin dirt from the stock. The buttplate screws required some oomph to remove-they are so rotten that they're getting tossed.
    I'm not shooting for factory new appearance; just a clean usable rifle.

    That’s a great idea using oven cleaner to remove years of oil from the stock.

    I got the oven cleaner tip from a guy at a gun show years ago. His milsurp rifles were always the cleanest ones. It removes cosmoline better and safer than the old paintbrush and gasoline method!

    I used oven cleaner on my DCM Garand.
    I then sanded to smooth it up and then BLO.

    There's still some pepper, but I'm seeing some improvement on the action.
    It'll be fun teaching her to shoot it; a 511 is what I learned with.

    I search for rifles like that. Once in a while they are beyond repair, but it's surprising how many can be saved. Especially if you are not looking for a Turnbull Renovation kind of result. Time well spent.
