Default A-5 humpback went for a swim.. help

Yup the old browning went for a swim in the kayak and I did forget my paddle at first but this wasn't what it was intended for. I took off the barrel, forestock, rings and spring, duck plug, and lubed it with rem oil after I removed dirt and seaweed and brushed the bore and action the best I could. I took it out the next day and it shot fine but still some water in the action.

Do you guys have any tips I should do such as take it apart further and have it cleaned. I don't have the proper sized flat head's to take it apart.

On a side note I want the saftey switched to be left hand friendly, anyone have any ideas on costs for this?

Where do you live?
Go to a gunsmith, and tell the gunsmith what you told us.
If you live near a gunsmithing school, go to them, tell the teacher the same thing.
What ever you do get it cleaned, the mud grit will ruin it.
Good Luck.
