Oh the horror.
When I pulled out Betsy, my coach gun, the other day, I discovered that the RidDamp container had tipped and that that crap is HIGHLY corrosive.
The shells and the sleeve are a complete loss, totally fused together which really blows because I had some specialty home defense/less lethal rounds in it. A complete disassembly showed that the rust was limited to the triggers and guard. An hour or so w/ linseed oil, 0000 steel wool, and some fine modeling files got most of the rust off and smoothed them back down w/ only some blue-ing loss.
Then the really bad was found. As I pulled out the rest of the guns and inspected them, I found a small spot on the Colt SP-1 AR. A spot right on the edge of the grip holes.
Complete breakdown showed the stuff had run down the inside. This is what the bolt assembly looked like:
The inside was even worse. Effectively a complete loss. Thankfully I kept the original one. The upper and lower assemblies I was able to clean out relatively easily, oiled up, and reassembled.
What a sucky experience.
So who is willing to help fund a replacement bolt assembly and ammo and hopefully a portable dehumidifier? :)
