For the cat pee problem. First, eliminate the source. Permanently. Discretely.
There are lots of remedies on line if you search for "remove cat urine" but most of them will involve vinegar or other acids which will do nasty things to any metal they come in contact with, and probably not be good for the stock either. If it is old, just leave it alone. The lemon oil or turpentine odor will help mask it.
Don't get another cat.
Guns owned by smokers also have odor problems and usually a thick film of tar and nicotine. You can get a lot of it out with the cleaning methods mentioned by others.
