edit:


I did just notice the "corrosive" ammo comes in about 23 cents a round - never used corrosive ammo before ... I'm assuming as long as you strip your rifle after use, it's no problem at all?

Mil-Surp is cheaper without the clip. It's pretty much all corrosive due to the primers used. As stated, you just need to clean it after every range trip although I wouldn't recommend wizzing down the barrel at the range...people might get the wrong idea.

Good luck, I like these guys, I think I might be helping to put their kids through school, but with the "rush", it is hard to get them on the phone,(number temporarily turned off) and have been slow on e-mails.

Have you guys had experience buying from jgsales before?

They still haven't updated me on my order, not contacted my FFL (who is on file with them)

They wont answer their phones and aren't responding to email.

I've had good luck with them, they are just overwhelmed with orders right now. Just be patient and it will arrive just slower than at a non-panic buying time.

Well - it's been 22 days since I paid - but I *FINALLY* got my rifle (still waiting on the ammo...sigh)

Annnnnnnnd it's caked is cosmoline, lol

I've read LOTS of home brewed methods on google searches of how to get the cosmoline off, but I need a source I can trust.

How have you guys/gals taken care of getting it off
