    Any suggestions about if/how to weatherproof the 1301 while trekking around the Tongass rainforest? The weather next week looks... wet. Should I be worried about shells in the tube getting wet?

    This guy seems to have done it without issue. Makes sense considering duck hunters and all.

    I humped guns in HI jungles plenty of times without any issue from moisture. If you're that worried about it, sling it under your poncho. This way it's still ready for self-defense use where you don't need to remove it from a sock/cover.

    If it gets soaked, hit it the gun with WD40 (Water displacement), wipe it dry, and use CLP. Then wipe down the brass on the shells from the magazine and/or replace those shells with fresh ones. Let the wet ones dry out.

    I don't think much of that is necessary but that's what I would do in the field if concerned. I would use a sandwich bag or condom on the barrel muzzle if you think you might get mud in there.

    I've seen in other forums where people just tape over the muzzle with blue or green painter's tape to keep water and debris out. Rifles or shotguns. If you need to shoot with it on there, the tape doesn't hurt anything and doesn't affect POI.

    I have never worried about slugs getting wet. I tape the muzzle of my hunting rifles with 3M electrical tape but not my shotguns as I want the water to run out and my slightly extended mag tube is an offset from the muzzle going into mud.

    I grew up in Alaska, Anchorage area, and we did most of our hunting around Iliamna, Kenai peninsula and places I can't remember (too young). We didn't do shotgun hunting, so I can't speak for that, but when I was carrying the rifle slung, it was muzzle down on the left shoulder. I don't know that would work for you, but it would help that the shell mouths would face down so less likely that water would run into the shell.

    Reviewing 400+ pages for those little nuggets of information is hypnotizing. Anyway, I did a search (the whole damn internet) for the answer to my question, but didn't find it. The though occurred to me it could be very useful to have an M-Lok slot template you could use to create a mounting slot in a plastic handguard or buttstock where none existed.
