    Dark bore

    I have a WWII firearm which had a dark bore but otherwise is in great shape. Is there a product out there that will shine up the bore or a procedure which will help me get this bore bright? Thanks

    Have you cleaned the bore with solvent etc. to get all "crud" and fouling out? If it's due to pitting, You could try using a fine abrasive such as J&B bore cleaner, but I'd just try shooting it first. Be extremely careful NOT to let the rod drag on the bore at the muzzle. The resulting wear at the muzzle will ruin accuracy. I have gotten decent accuracy with lightly pitted barrels.
    The thief may possess something he stole, but he does not own it.
    The owner has a right to take his property back from the thief.
