    Just dug this today and appears to be an Andrew Fryberg & Co. Revolver. Iím wanting to clean my to clean it up without destroying it. It looks to be deeply rusted. I also donít want to try anything that might destroy the hand grips. I think they are a plastic. Any thoughts?

    Electrolysis, but I'm afraid it's already destroyed.

    Nice find!

    If you can, remove the plastic hand grips (if you can); electrolysis appears to be the best solution.

    Can’t get grips off. Used dish detergent, and wire brush. Afraid to do more. Here’s how it looks now.
