Received my Mosin Nagant today. BUT! what a mess this comosline stuff is. Came with all the goodies, bayonet, cartridge belt, tools, etc I am going to take it slow in cleaning. I will clean all the metal parts with mineral sprints. Letting all parts soak over night. As to stock, I will use my wife clothes steamer to get a lot of it off the wood, then I will use the hot sun to let it cook and keep wiping off the wood. Will be glad to accept any advice. Yep, got a box of surgical gloves.
