Ive got four mosins all of em got extremely thorough cleanings one of had to be run in a parts washer to get the cosmo out of the chamber area. The others only needed a few hours with qtips hoppes and some brushes.
Dont clip the striker spring!!!!!!!!!!!! cannot stress that enough. Clipping striker springs in any rifle is an extremely bad idea. It can easily lead to hangfires which can lead to accidental shootings when someone tries to figure why it didnt go boom. It can also lead to firing with a partial open bolt after a hangfire as you go to see what went wrong.
If you have a gun that someone bubba'd the spring on GET A NEW SPRING BEFORE FIRING AGAIN!!!!
DONT CLIP SPRINGS!!!!!!!
If you think your spring is too heavy contact wolff springs they know everything about gun springs. Only use springs that are properly made and tested in a striker application.
