What better way to spend a Saturday evening than in your friend’s basement cleaning and restoring weapons?
Eva is an heirloom weapon, a trophy of war that my grandfather pulled off a dead Nazi somewhere in France. She hadn’t been fired since 1944 and 60+ years in storage had taken its toll on her.
In addition to the years of dust and chemical deterioration, Eva’s bolt assembly had fallen apart. Adam did a little research and managed to find a compatible replacement.
After some minor restorative work on Eva, I needed to do a little work on my Tokarev. I purchased her at a gun show a couple weeks ago and needed to perform a little maintenance after taking her to the range.
