Fun project! I've done Martini-Henrys and Sniders in "untouched" condition from the Nepal armory, but they weren't nearly the basket case -appearing guns this was. Mostly woodwork on those since yak fat is an excellent metal preservative.
I find it very therapeutic watching videos like this and restoring old discarded items myself.
I wouldn't tackle something as complex as a firearm though. Amazing that he even attempted to fire it let alone that it actually did
