Experiencing aromas that are not really there is one of the symptoms of having a brain tumor.

No stinky guns here, but I've fired some ammo that would gag a maggot.

I ain't none joking. One of the most common brain tumor related armoas experienced is the scent of roses.

imbroglio is right- if you can smell fire or urine, this is a medical indication of being a scytsoid (can't spell that one worth a sh*t) uncle buck - you're killing me - but i refuse to cut down the tree with a herring. steve

It's not that odd at all. In order to get rid of smoke smell from wood you have to sand. I have sanded and stripped refinished etc. countless pieces of furniture for my mother the antique dealer. When she gets something from a heavy smoker and I start woking on it, I swear that I'm in the freakin Elks club. *** I'm not really suggesting that you [u]must[/u] sand to get rid of odors. ****This goes for wood pieces from homes full of stinky folks with stinky pets too.

Were the previous owners women? I heard that some women like to use guns as....uh never mind. [0j]

Uh, try cleaning the guns. Is this to obvious? Hell, I'm a smoker and I haven't found anything yet that I can't clean the smell of cig smoke out of. Try some Murphy's Oil soap on the stock.

I've bought old guns that had an aroma of lots and lots of burned gunpowder. The scent of freedom. Imbrog|io is right about the brain tumor stuff, BTW. Really depends on exactly where the tumor is, though.

you're lucky... think if somebody farted on the guns...

Phil I purchased a complete upper and it smelled like smoke. Called the Co. talked to the builder and he said that he did smoke. I cleaned it as best I could, removed all of the oil and grease and washed the hand guards with soap and water. I left the upper out in the sun for a few days and the smell went away.

It is odd you should bring this up. I once owned a S&W mod 686, 4" bbl. It was superbly accurate but the actual stainless steel stank. I also had a 6" - 686 at the time and there was no particular odor. I could smell it best right after a good cleaning. All my buddies thought I was nuts. I am not going to tell them what Imbro said about that, though. ;-)).

Yeah, a Rogak P-18. Back about '80. I didn't smell, but it stunk as a quality pistol. Sent it back, got my money back eventually. Good riddance. [>]:)]
