Cleaning tips

What do you think I should use to clean this s/s gun ????

Its the dull type finish , but it has a 10 year coat of yellowish tarnish on it.

Its going to g/broker to fund a 338 ruger 77..

Its a Winchester model 70 stainless classic in 338.

Maybe some scotch brite. It looks like it's going to be a lot of work. I'd just tell them they're getting it like that.

Re: Cleaning tips

...try some pure ammonia and fine steel wool...brush on the ammonia and let set 5 min then steel wool it and wipe it with a wet rag....

Re: Cleaning tips

I think Flitz makes a cleaner polish just for stainless, could test it on the bottom of the barrel

Every gun needs maintenance if you want to use it for long. So for maintenance of guns you must clean it with good quality polish.

Most of my work or match guns are stainless because of lower mantenance . At one time I had too many guns , did a ton of reloading and built 90% of my match guns and didn't have alot of time for mantenance on guns I didn't shoot .
