Sorry a head of time but I need to vent some. Last Dec. I let my brother in law borrow my cva optima pro because he said his loader wasn't shooting right. (I just think he can't shoot straight)
So I said yes because I already had a buck and doe in the freezer.
So he never got a deer and I never saw my gun till mid jan.( no big deal)
Well last night I was cleaning the gun room and I pulled the cva out of the gun case. I noticed the end of the barrel bad a little rust in it so I got out the cleaning supplies to take care of it. When I went to unscrew my breech plug it wouldn't budge. I had to get a cheater bar to get it open.
When I looked in I saw the horror that was waiting for me. The whole inside was rusted up. My brother in law never bothered to clean it after he used it.
I know I should had checked it but I never thought he would not clean it. He is 30 and has had guns all his life. I have no idea why he never cleaned it and i'm a jackass for not looking, but still.
So here is why I am writing. I have ran bore cleaner, rem oil, wd-40 thru it and it is still bad.
if someone has any tips that would be great.
I know now to always check my guns right away and never let anyone borrow them.
