I would like to thank everyone for the great advice.

I'm going to play it safe and just have it cleaned. It does have a damaged barrel (right barrel, at the end, misshapen due to being dropped, perhaps?)

I remember the gunsmith (Vince Capon, of Fayette Gun Shop, who came highly recommended locally) noted a few other small issues, but I can't remember the specifics. He was able to determine it was an earlier model but suggested appraisal/assessment with a parker expert before taking any action.

Regardless, I'll contact Brian and follow up with him to go over options as far as cleaning/care is concerned.

Everyone has been fantastic on this journey through our family history so far and I can't wait to see where it leads!

Thanks again,
