Cooey Model 840 12 gauge, full choke 28 inch barrel made in Cobourg Ontario. Cooey was bought by Winchester in the 1960's.

Thanks for the info. Nice looking shotgun!

My first firearm was a single shot, full choked, long barrel 20 Gauge from Sears & Robuck. That's what I started with, killed a lot of geese with that shotgun as a young kid.

My first was an H&R Topper, single shot 12ga, don't remember the barrel or choke.
Even with a recoil pad, that old thing beat me to death, but deadly on dove,
Jack rabbit & quail.

I have used the Oxpho blue liquid on several barrels over the years and always had good results. Depending on your results, multiple coats and rubbing with fine steel wool in between coats can help. Cleaning really well and getting an even metal prior to application, it comes out really well. I always coat with thick oil and let it soak afterward. I have even used it for 'touch ups' and it works well.

Use copper wool with heavy oil before you walk away (after you've neutralized and cleaned).
