So I inherited a 30-06 from my late grandfather. This thing hasn't been fired in probably 20 years. However, he did keep it oiled and dry so everything appears to be ok. Any areas I should look at closely before I send some lead downrange?

Just check the bore and run a brush and a couple patches through it . You should be good to go.

Already done. Hopefully it shoots as good as it looks.

Wear your big boy pants, they kick and make a little noise.:p
It's not the biggest gun in the safe. :p

BTW it shoots a nice grouping. I will check it later. It was way to cold to walk through a foot of snow to see how good it was.

Best time to shoot. You can see the vapor trail with a naked eye then.

So, you going to leave us hangin' or what?

What model is it?

I'm just curious if you stumbled on to an old pre '64 Mod. 70 or something.

very cool! earlier this year, i shot a 1917 enfield i inherited that hadn't been shot for an unkown amount of time; 30 years+. it used to be my grandfathers deer/antelope rifle many moons ago, felt pretty special to make it go bang once again.
