Need some input on the best ways to remove cosmoline from a SKS I just purchased. I was planning on completely stripping the rifle and soaking the metal parts in mineral spirits. Is this a good approach or would kerosene/ gasoline be better? How bout WD-40 or carb cleaner? How about the wood. can a blow dryer work to help "bleed out" or mabey an oven at very low temp? Any help would be great; I want to get this done as easily and efficiently as can be done.
