Welcome to the addictive world of Mosin Nagant ownership. There are numerous threads in this forum to get some background, As far as cleaning goes there are almost as many methods and suggestions as there are actual rifles...here's one I put up a while back.

http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f37/mosin-clean-up-50737/

The link below is also a great source of info for all things Mosin and is really helpful in identifying many of the markings found on these rifles. You will need to know some basic info for conversation and description...receiver type: hex or round, armory: Tula (arrow in star) or Izhevsk (arrow in triangle), date of birth: 1942, etc. All info can be deciphered from the markings...have fun!

Heat, solvent, and time is all it takes to clean it. When i first got mine i cleaned everything. Just take it all apart and clean all the parts till they are dry. I like to use grease rather than oil on bolt actions because it gives it a buttery smooth feel and it seems to work better when heated as you are shooting. Make sure you clean the chamber well and you wont have any issues with sticky bolt. good luck

I would be willing to bet that you are single. No married man would ever put a new Mosin Nagant on a white chair.

Congrats on your purchase. Beware of Mosinitis.

These rifles have a very interesting history. At the risk of getting in trouble, check out the 7.62x54r net. Also there is a good book; The Mosin Nagant Rifle by Lapin, that is a good start to learning about them.
