THIS OLD RELIC HAS A NEW LIFE (VIDEO)

How far gone can a firearm be before there is no return?

Well this rifle is in dire need of a new life.

Check out the transformation this YouTuber accomplished on this junk pile rifle.

Ever have a “barn gun” that is ready to go to the scrap pile? Well with a little elbow grease it might be raised from the dead like Lazarus.

YouTuber Restore & Rebuild shared a video of a gun refurb project they intend to be a “wall hanger”. This long gun has seen some better days. It is a bolt action (possibly a Mauser) that almost looks to have been bored out to a shotgun? The refurb of this mystery gun is done in fast action and shows all of the steps to get the old bolt action worthy of display.

Is it safe to fire? Well this gun along with any other rescue should be checked by a competent gunsmith before live ammo is anywhere near it. Better be safe than sorry!
