Nice looking rifle you picked up there! I think I may have to get into a surplus or two. Seems like a great way to pick up a good rifle cheap.

Does anyone know how to clean the barrel after shooting? the primer is corrosive so...
I read that windex is good but not really sure on what to use and the technique

Hot water and a drop of dish soap! Then clean as usual from chamber to bore.
The Otis kit I use is the the older version of the hardcore, and I have a tactical version for the field. Just buy some extra patches and bore solvent. Works great.

Get a can of Gunslick foaming bore cleaner. I've cleaned 6 or so rifles w/ the small size and still have enough for a few more rifles. It is not as harsh as Sweets or other cleaners. It removes grunge and copper fouling.

What is the difference between this rifle and the M24/47? Which one is considered better?
