I got my 50 bmg back. She's been gone for a couple of years as half is owned by an inlaw. I found the answer to some maintenance questions here on "The Road." There was some bad rusting inside the trigger guard that I scrubbed off with a bore brush and Hoppes gun oil. The receiver ring also had rust. Unfortunately, the thin phosphate finish comes right off with the rust leaving bare steel gleaming under it. Before looking here for a solution to bare steel, I went and painted the bare steel with black enamel. It looks like hell, but much better looking than rust. The trigger guard is not noticeable, but the rceiver. ring is ugly. Scrubbing the trigger guard 50 bore brush ready for more Hoppes.. They just opened a new NRA range at Fife Lake Michigan. I shot this there yesterday. It is the neatest range I have ever seen and FREE! If you wanna' fire a 50 sometime, meet me there!
