Well the hike today was tough.
No quai seen or heard.
1st spot saw a few rabbits not much else no dog or cat scat.
Second spot saw a few Jack's and cotton tails.
Lots of dog tracks, bobcat and mountain lion.
Found two guzzlers.
Resale will be a problem.
If you got your mind set.
Think about a vapor blast.
Or walnut blast. Take it apart
And mask it well and very low pressure
Blast. 60 psi. Or less.
Plug the barrel and mask all moving parts with tape.
A vapor blast will not Remove metal.
Sanding will and can.
