I have recovered some firearms that were submerged in virgin 30 Wt. motor oil for the last three years.
PLEASE READ THIS PART: I do NOT want to thoroughly clean them........I only want to simulate recovering them with NO gasoline or diesel fuel to flush the Gas tube.
They have been hanging in the sun for three days to drain the oil. I will most likely allow them a full ten days to drain. The buffer, buffer spring & plastic butt-stock were stored separately not in oil bath. The Handguard is metal and was submerged.
QUESTION: Anything I should be aware of before discharging a cartridge.....??? My only know concern is air lock holding oil in gas tube. However wondering if there is some factor I am not aware of......
They will go back into the oil bath after this test.
