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.

When the going gets wierd, the wierd turn pro....
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!
