Thanks to NWFA and Coctailer, I picked up the Mosin-Nagant from the quarterly drawing today. Now I just need to do some cosmo cleaning. What are your preferred methods? Last time I did it, a friend had picked up a couple of M1s (20+ years ago). His dad had us remove the stocks and put the guns in a drum with near-boiling water for about 10 minutes, wipe 'em off, then get to work on the action with gasoline and toothbrushes. I'm thinking my steamgun followed by a liberal dose of good old-time Hoppes then CLP the heck out of it. I'll post a few pics after I clean it up.
