Many thanks for the very interesting info about the screws & washers. I'll do some more homework to understand why the draw filing might have been done. (Clean up a rough forging? Remove rust?) I'd appreciate any other input about the rifle, cleaning and protection. And also about what I can do to prevent further deterioration of the sling.
