Teach/Mike/Calib Rem 7400 ??
Wife's friend brings over a 7400 in 30-06 that had been neglected ever since her divorce! The thing looked like it came out of King Tuts tomb! So I dis-assembled and cleaned! Found some pitting near the muzzle, but it cleaned up after socking in Kroil and chucking a cleaning brush in the cordless drill. The test fire was interesting! First shot the empty did not extract so I figure bad extractor, but the rim was ripped off the empty, so good extractor. Closer inspection revealed some pitting in the chamber, I polish the chamber. Next shot same thing, rim ripped off case. My opinion is the chamber is to pitted to save! Can't find a replacement barrel in any caliber. I say it's a parts gun. What say you??!!
