Default New "old" pistol

I just received a "new" Norinco M93 pistol that seems to have been placed in a plastic bag with all the manufacturing coatings (grease) inside this baggie, but, I think that it was done about 20 years ago, so, it is a fairly stinky mess now.

I am looking for recommendations for cleaning this, both inside and out before I take it to the range and see how well it really does.

If you are wondering, just holding it leaves a stench all over my hands that is difficult to wash off with regular soap-n-water - I need to use industrial strength SprayNine on my hands to just get them cleaned up enough to consider touchin' the bathroom door.

Awesome ... thanks for the info. I have heard about cosmoline, but, never seen cosmoline before. If that's what it really is, I have some work to do now!
