    My father gave me his old Marlin Model 80DL Bolt Action .22L-S-LR. It has a tube fed magazine. I cant find how to disassemble the bolt. What cleaner would be best to soak the whole bolt in since I cant disassemble it? I doubt very much it has ever been 'deep' cleaned.

    Well 'soak' maybe a strong term. Looking at an old owner's manual for the before mentioned does not show/tell you how to disassemble the bolt. The complete bolt is on the parts list, which is probably not made anymore.

    Looking into the bolt I can see the firing pin spring is very dirty with gun oil/grease and spend powder I want to get that cleaned out. Would spray saturation work then blow it out with compressed air be ok?
