Does anyone see any potential problems arising from shooting with an SR2 (body and mags) that has not been run in about a year? Scratch tests came out fine. I assume all the internal lubrication will "re-disperse" itself as the moving parts move again. Any other signs of malfunction to be aware of?

Thanks.

If you are using the on-board batteries, are they holding a charge. I run my SR once a month, ten minutes on each mag and battery, and charge the batteries about every other month. That keeps it in good shape between jobs.
