Re: Legal stuff and transportation.

This is not legal advice,as I understand the requirements,it is the owners duty to secure their firearm as best they can when travelling.You could look at the NSW Firearms Registry for guidance.

Re: Molybdenum disulphides, to use or not to use?

I agree with Chris,had three barrels around the 3000 round mark checked with a bore scope,compared with similar round count barrels and of the same manufacturer,but not moly coated,mine looked fine,the non molyed ones were severely fire cracked.Wet moly application is not difficult,I clean every day...
