I will do some research for sure and see what I can come up with Also...If any of you can ID the gun by all means jump on in. I'm trying to Id it now by the shape of it.
    I did a doubled bitted spliting axe, I took two days, And two bottles of vineger. And buddy it did a wonderfull job! I'd say one to two days, whatever is left on day one take a brass brush and lightly brush it off, then another soaking, when your done with the vineger bath make sure the run rinse it in cold plain water, to stop the process, Good luck and please show us the results, Cant wait to see it cleaned up.

    I'll take a picture when I get home in the morning. Hopefully this wire brushing will show some details. It is in rough shape.

    Day 4 in Vinegar. I could probably take the Dremel tool and Drill with wire brush to it at this point, but I am still going to let it soak a couple more days. This stuff is amazing on Iron. BAD thing is I know a guy that drinks this stuff..OMG..If it will dissolve rust off of iron think about what it would do to your stomach.

    Oh yeah, it's working, it's working right on schedule. Comin' right along. Keep at it, don't be afraid to brush it.

    Very nice Zax - workin' just like it's supposed to! BTW, you can likely pop some of those remaining rust spots off with the point of a pocket knife. Apple cider vinegar is an amazing product. It's gotta lot of uses - works great on cleaning glass too. And, yes, it's good for you! I take a shot every now and then myself, though I mix some water with it.

    Looking good! I'm guessing no markings were left? Well no big deal it's still a great looking relic even if you don't know who made it!

    Thanks Nola Ken, Pete and Coop. I'm like you guys. The Colt New Line is the closest match I could find. I fit a .22 bullet into the end of the barrel and it was larger than the bullet. That leads me to believe that it is a .32 caliber. It was about that size. I bought my Briwax today to preserve the gun. A couple more days in the cider and it should be ready to finish cleaning and then heating and applying wax. I'm excited to get it out and preserve it.

    Try the buffer and blue wonder. Looks like it could use some new grips too. The replacement cylinder is a little pricey though. I wouldn't try shooting it till you slug the barrel either. Just sayin...

    Great find! It makes you wonder just how old it is, and if it was used in any old crime.
    Please keep us updated.
