It's actually the water in the Windex that does the job but to each his own...

I just use hot water and a spot of dish soap...

As easy as it is to take down, I just go ahead and do that each time, that way I don't have to worry about getting the wood wet.

If you did miss a spot or two, it'll be fairly obvious a day or three later then you can adjust your cleaning method accordingly...

Now hook us up wit sum dam pichers!!!

Pictures coming this weekend

I've wiped it down pretty good but still haven't done the full clean yet - waiting until I have a day off...

Nice cant wait to see it. The more thorough you are the better it will come out. I've heard stories about sticky bolt, one guy said it was so bad he had to kick the bolt just to get it open.

That's a rip off my cousin got one for $100. I think I'm going to buy one for fun some time over the summer.

Beggars can't be choosers =)

I ended up getting a Mosin and several hundred rounds of ammo for $300.00

I'm happy.

Lol my oil can (I think that's what it is) had it all over it in some places literally 1/4 inch thick I just threw it in with all the metal parts in the mineral spirits and it cleaned it right up

A greasy sling is a PITA!! I got one too... It seems they went out of their way to fill the oil cans with goop, had to boil it all out...

A small price to pay for the fun though...
