Cosmoline Removal

Postby CCA762 » Thu Dec 03, 2015 4:29 pm

This may have already been thought of previously but I recently remembered a cleaning trick I learned from another gunsmith and was curious to see if it would work on cosmoline removal on the mosin's. I just use Simple Green cleaner in it's full concentration form, don't dilute it with water. Place the parts in a small plastic bin or some form of container that will allow you to submerse the parts. Let the parts soak for a while and then use stainless steel brushes for the tough stuff and stiff polymer brushes for overall removal. You may need to repeat a couple of times but you can see from the pics that it worked very well.

If you could work out a way to keep the solution from running out, would this work on the sticky chamber?

Bearrowland,
Better late than never. We usually plug the muzzle end of the barrel and stand the rifle up on the muzzle end and fill the barrel and chamber with the simple green and allow it to soak for a day. Repeat if necessary.
