cosmoline is a heavy greasy substance that is used to preserve firearms for long periods of storage. it doesnt hurt the gun unless you try to fire it with the barrel full of it.
its like a thicker axle grease. its gold/yellow coloured and is easily removed by leaving the weapn in direct hot sunlight for several hours letting it heat up naturally and run off the gun with it muzzle down.
after that its easy to wipe off with hoppes#9
yours may or may not have it all over the gun. both of mine had minor ammounts but both barrels and bolts need a good cleaning.
its a simple rifle very easy to take apart.
