When I first got my Farm I was In the Barn Loft cleaning up a lot of stuff the former owners had left behind. Under a pile of tools and plumbing fixtures I spotted the barrel of a rifle. I dug threw the mess and found a Glenfield Marlin M10. It must have been up in that loft for years. Totally rusted, and moldy. At first glance I thought it was a goner. But I took it out to my gun shop and it sat there for a month. Then one day I decided to strip it down and see if it could possibly be saved. The pitting was bad on the outside but for some reason the bore was pristine. Someone must have run a patch of oil down the barrel before they tossed it up there. I went to work with some 0000 steel wool and WD40. After 3 tries I got most of the rust and pitting off. I then sanded the mold from the stock and used some Minwax Wipe on Poly. I had a 60's era 12x Redfield scope laying around and figured it was the proper glass for the old rifle. I went outside and setup a target at 50 yds. I pulled the bolt and bore sighted it. 3 adjustments on the scope latter I was shooting quarter size bug holes in the paper. Another 2 adjustments and nickel sized clover leafs. What a shooter this old gun is. I own many .22's but this one is my go to rifle for Varmint control on the farm. Many a hole digging groundhog has gotten one in one ear and out the other.
