Default I have a Stupid question?

I just bought a brand new mossberg maverick 88 and its REALLY greasy and oily. It came like that when I bought it. Finger prints, dirt, etc. and not just on the outside, I can tell its like that on the inside also. .. Is that normal? And if so, should I clean it inside and out. If so, how should I clean it?

The situation you describe is not out of the ordinary. Just perform a thorough field strip and cleaning like you would after a range session.

Are there any videos on how to properly clean it after field stripping it. I saw one on YouTube but it didn't look legit to me. I couldn't find anymore.

There are lots of videos on YouTube on disassembly. They do grease them up pretty good before shipping so every new gun you buy always field strip and clean

The gun came from the factory oiled up, to prevent rust when stored in a back room for up to a number of months on occasion. The fingerprints are probably from the dealer showing the gun to a previous customer.

Thanks. It's not as bad as I'm making it seem but it just surprised me. I didn't think it would come like that.
