My advise would be to turn and run away as quickly as possible. I say this while I am looking at the half dozen "wart hogs" sitting over in the corner of my man room that I have accumulated over the years. I was going to SAVE everyone of them and that was the justification I used when I was romancing it in my mind. If I had the money I put into my warthogs in my pocket today, I could just go buy a really nice 20 gauge GHE and enjoy it. Take Murphy's advice on value, he is the king of wart hogs and knows what they are worth. I think the guy's telling you the gun is worth 2k are doing you a disservice. Just one bottom feeders opinion.

Cheers
PML

Harry I don't like steel wool, use the pad Dean uses that I have used with great results, just can't remember the name, Frontier pad, something like that with oil. It won't hurt the finish on the steel

Buy all the Frontier pads you want at $6 each, or buy six of these for less. Absolutely the same pad.

Thanks Edgar. I ordered this morning and should have the pads by Wednesday. In the mean time I've been loosening up the rust with Kroil and a toothbrush. I hadn't realized the amount of rust on the barrels and rib. A little nasty looking.

Cool GHE 20

Receiver looks blued to me, maybe barrels were hot blued too, stock needs a lot of work to make it safe to shoot, barrel dents were not done correctly, would cost at least 2500 to do it right, would be a nice gun then, but you would be upside down for a long time, probable forever. I wish it was in better shape, but it is what it is a money pit.

Guys I bought some of what Edgar is talking about and it scratched a sxs and a rifle I was using it on and I Know for sure they were original and not reblued . It is a thicker pad as the frontier are softer and not as sharp in my mind . Just my 2 cents .

Not in book, no info on gun to see what letter is, still a nice one to have if it was fixed completely, I re read first post, barrels are reblued hope rib is tite, looks like weep hole drilled on underside of rib, probable a hot reblue, not good by any means

According to their website the Frontier pads are a proprietary alloy of stainless steel, nickel silver, monel (a corrosion resistant nickel based alloy), and zinc that is harder than rust but softer than bluing. I just received an order for a dozen pads and they do seem different than a straight stainless steel pad. Probably not worth removing bluing or scratching the metal just to save a couple of bucks.
