Greased the new Scout

I took my new Scout apart and found that it was nicely greased from the factory. I added some grease to the bolt and the op rod. I used Tony Ben's videos as a good starting point. First real post from a first time owner! Now all I need to do is to actually shoot it!

Enjoy the shooting indeed! Also huge shoutout to TonyBen for the fantastic greasing/cleaning guide. I have used them as well and they are an invaluable resource.

Thanks from neubert500

The Tony videos are great indeed! I would post a pic, bit I don't know how to yet, and mine is just a basic Scout in wood, so nothing special. Special to me for sure!

Thanks from neubert500

My buddy has his FFL so I ordered through him. $1499. You can find similar prices online.
