Just picked up my first mosin nagant m91/30 1942 from Crossroads arms here in vancouver. First, nothing but good things to say about Joe. Experience was quick and hassle free. Now onto the stock. I have been googling everything about removing cosmoline but I figured I would ask here because I like seeing new threads to read as well as wanting information from locals who understand a sunny day isn't something I can wait for lol. I was wondering if anyone had ways of removing cosmoline that's apartment friendly/weather friendly. Ive seen the EZ bake oven designs but that isn't really practical for me. I was wondering if a heat gun would do the trick or something like it? I checked walmart and their heat guns only have like 2 settings 750 degrees f or 1000 degrees f. I read that the melting point is only 130-150, somewhere in there. That makes me think the heat gun would be too hot and would cook the cosmoline. Are there anyways of removing cosmoline from the stock other than trashbag and sunny day/ez bake oven/oven/dish washer? Or does anybody do this regularly in the area with a self made ez bake and want to make a few bucks? Lol id rather do it myself if possible though, after all that's half the experience. Any information helps, thanks! Also, anyone have any luck with the ati monte carlo stocks? Seems it takes a lot of work and sometimes fits loose.
