Paul, just a little tongue in cheek. I am sure you have been cleaning the "insides".

I have never had a problem with plastic residue but never say it out loud. I have purchased guns with plastic residue though.


So many guns, so little time!

Hause:

I may have missed it, but have you tested any of the above? I was interested in Poldi Antikorro and recently read of the following values, which may be old hat:

"Poldi-Anti-Corro" patented in 1910:
....contained 0.145% Carbon, 0.45% Silicon, 0.50% Manganese and 9.78% Nickel - cited under -C. C. Leidedera-1915?

That 9.78% nickel content is what gave it its Anti-Corro monicker.
Offhand I do not know if there is a corresponding ANSI number, but should be something close. Even in 1910, I would have figured the carbon content would have been higher than that 0.145%, more on the order of 0.45%, but that was just a guess.

Miller:

I'm not at all positive of those unconfirmed values. I just wanted a little more ground truth.

I can't dilly dally long in cleaning my old SuperP's. The darn chambers start to rust on the way home from the range to the house. And that ain't far!

Henry Ford, on his 1906 visit to France, visited several steel mills, first to employ electric melt furnaces, and first to use Vanadium to alloy steels--believe he used those alloys in the crankshaft rods and the actual crankshaft in the 4-banger engines his Rouge plants produced, and later in the flathead V-8 that came out in 1932-- L.C. Smith may have also used a vanadium alloyed steel for their cocking rods-- very seldom hear of one fracturing--RWTF

Fox,
I believe he is referring to a Browning Superposed. Their chambers were known to rust easily.

Thanks, Karl.. Does that include the Superposed series made in Belgium, as well as the later Japanese Citori series? My Doctor was telling me recently that he believes some of the higher end Browning Competition Over and Blunders run up to $7500- Wowie, waaaaay outta my reach, even if I liked O/U's (which I don't)--

Fox,
I believe it was just the Belgium ones that were prone to the chamber problem. The Citori series had chromed chambers I think, as I never had any problems with mine. I sold all my Citoris after discovering the pleasure of SxS's!
