Long term storage
My nephew handed me a Remington 511. Barrel date has it manufactured in Oct 1951 and it showed its age. This one and another looked like they stood in the corner of a barn after bubba got bored. There were a lot of dings and scratches, I removed most with steam. The bluing was fair with minor pitting on the exterior of one side of the barrel. I used Oxphoblue on all the metal with great results. I sanded the stock and used Permalyn sealer and finish on it. I used three cots of sealer and four coats of finish and I have a nice soft satin sheen. Alas I fear this will be stored a lot more than its used. How should I finish the job for long term storage?
