Dead Horse Buried!

Post by Mistered » Sat Mar 21, 2020 6:42 pm

Ok - I finally got around to applying the Tetra Grease to the bolt grooves of my 121 year old Winchester and it turned it into, well a 121 year old Winchester that is as smooth as silk!

NOW this particular rifle is rare in that it is essentially like new inside and has probably been fired very little and the internals are very sharp and unworn and I recently did a complete takedown and cleaning as it has sat in a closet for over 50 years when I got it but the Tetra grease really slicked it up.

Cycling the action of this rifle is is a very 'satisfying' experience!

I also just applied it to my 1966, 1866 Commemorative Winchester which is well, not the smoothest action I have ever experienced, and has taken a lot of work to get running well, and the Tetra grease has really made a difference with it also.

Currently In the process of applying it to my Henry and 1967 'Buffalo Bill' Commemorative Winchester as well and I expect similar results.

I like the tube as it makes it easy to apply. The stuff sticks well and 'creeps' very slowly - but smells terrible ! - but I can live with that!

Will it be a shooter or a looker?

Oh, I beg to differ friend.
Those Winnie's of yours are lookers, they may be shooters, but they are lookers also.
My two cents worth.

Well, that did cross my mind. But, I like a nice looking firearm also. I was at a LGS today and seen a few nice looking shotguns. One was a Benelli. I had to keep telling myself that $1,000 is to much to spend for a shotgun that I may not shoot too often, as I was walking backwards away from it. :(

Thanks!
I originally interpreted 'lookers' as 'safe queens'!
