    Dug a Pistol today!!!

    Hello Everyone. Today I went out for an evening hunt. I decided to take the ole F75 and go back over to a spot where I have dug a ton of 3 ring bullets and a General service eagle button. I wanted to dig a bullet or two, but what I dug this afternoon really surprised me. Was walking along and found a spot that was just full of iron signals..So I decided to start digging a few of them and see what I could come out with. They were all fairly shallow targets. First signal I dug was a nail. Covered the hole and dug the next signal. It rang in around a 12 or so. Strong overload. To my surprise I cut the plug and reaching it and grabbed what I thought was a small iron rod. Gave it a tug and out popped a freakin pistol. I could not believe it. Snapped a couple of pictures and moved on. Dug a pair of V nickels from the other side of the park as well today. Stayed out a couple of hours and dug a couple more wheat pennies then called it a day. I came home and ran the gun under some water and snapped you guys some pictures. I am going to find the fellow on here who has been cleaning up his axe heads so nicely and see if his method will work on this gun. I am getting away from electrolysis, because my results were not that great. I want this to clean up nicely. Thank you all for looking. zaxfire69

    I sure will Rob. I'm looking for the fellow on here that cleaned his axe heads recently. I want to say he soaked them in some type of vinegar and would take them out occasionally and wire brush them. I don't want to electrolysis this one. 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.

    What he used is Apple Cider Vinager, And I can tell you it worked GREAT on A doubled Bitted Axe that I tried it out on, And I'll bet it would work wonders on that Pistol frame too. JMHO HH

    Hey Gunrunner I have it in White Vinegar right now. I will go buy a Gallon of Apple Cider Vinegar this afternoon. I wonder how long to keep it in there. Probably a week or two I am guessing.

    I have it soaking in some Apple Cider vineger as we speak. I'm going to leave it in till Tuesday Morning then check it an see if any loose rust will come on off. I wish I could ID the gun , but with so many Spur trigger guns out there it will be a tough one. I'm going to get it as clean as possible. Thanks everyone for the comments.

    Nice old spur trigger revolver! I wanted to try to id it for you, but there were just way too many different makers that look exactly like it. It would be really cool if some markings turn up when you clean it!
