I really want to believe this story...but these days too many Internet a**h***s with Photoshop looking for attention.

BUT...just in case it is true... cool.

if it's well oil and in relatively shallow water to worse it into oiled crevices, I don't see why it wouldn't. 6mo is also not that much time.

still, cool story.

"Pile of corrosion?"

According to the armslist and gun broker ads I see that's just some "light surface rust" that'll "buff right out"
That thing isn't even dirty. [devil]

Of course, it is a Glock, so I would have thrown it back. [smile]

This reminds me of a thread on Sigforum where some guy had excavated a safe full of guns that was submerged during the swill floods of Katrina. A lot of the handguns were salvageable but some of the rifles and shotguns got wrecked pretty hard. It was interesting to note the parts that seemed to rust vs those
that didn't. In the Glock he had the springs were toast but everything else was fine. The one that did the best was his HK USP. Nothing on that gun rusted, except for some bizarre reason, the slide lock/takedown pin on the outside. The slide on that gun was completely unscathed.

The rifles and shotguns didn't fare nearly as well, some of them were pretty f***ed up, and that was only after like a short period of immersion, but god only knows what kind of chemicals and shit (literally) were in the swill in NOLA at the time.
