There are so many great oils out there.

I like Cleansoil, because it's a protectant, lubricant, and also

a very mild cleansing agent. IMO, many times it picks up

dirt I have missed.

But I can't say it's the best. Try a few things.

One great thing I can say about Rem oil, they have very nice

compact bottles for field use.

But you should try what's out there for yourself.

Cleaning and lube is as personal as gun selection, IMO.

I just bought a recoil pad for my rifle that replaces the metal butt plate. I hear of people drilling out the holes in the pad, should I?

Don't drill out the holes.

Then the screw heads would have nothing to catch on,

and you would ruin the new recoil pad.

Just remove the butt plate, and install it as it is.

I am not talking about the screw holes, there are partially drilled holes on the sides of the pad. I will try to find a picture of it online.

Here is pretty much the same one I bought. Same style with the partial holes in the sides.

My bad.

Those holes allow further recoil shock dampening by allowing

the recoil pad to compress slightly. I haven't drilled mine, as

it works fine for me as it is. YMMV. I'd try it without drilling first.

The best cleaner for your gun is a combination of your favorite cleaner in conjunction with a liberal amount of ELBOE GREASE!

If you clear those holes it can make the recoil a little softer. It shouldn't hurt anything. The only question is, is it necessary? I don't think it will make a noticeable difference myself. Go for it if you want.

Mosins are fantastic rifles. I wouldn't hestitate taking mine hog and deer hunting, expect I live in the great state of Illinois (not) and it's shot gun or black powder for deer. My mosin has had the living snot shot out of it and it's still deadly accurate with iron sights at 100+ yards. Ammo is cheap as dirt for it too. One of my favorite rifles I own to shoot and I have plenty of other options when it comes to rifles.
