    Heres a pic or the M38 for y'all to admire, I think she's a beaut. I dont have a fancy camera and I think she looks much better in person.


    she's beautiful as well...(had to throw her in, took both pics at the same time)


    enjoy,

    I've been using ammonia and bleach lately; it's a cleaning trend with great potential to explode into the mainstream!

    I use the cheap generic windex from walmart. Pull the bolt, spray down barrel till it runs out. Let sit a few minutes, then dry patch until it's dry, two or three patches, then pull through a bore snake with a little clp on it. If I have copper fouling, I use butche's bore shine.

    The cleaning suggestions reminds me of when I shot black powder.

    I own a 91\30 and use warm water with a little dishwashing soap in a plastic spray bottle immediately after shooting. Just remove the bolt and spray directly down the barrel and all in the receiver. A few hrs go by before I can clean it then I use the traditional cleaning methods. The warm water/soap neutralizes the salts from the primers preventing rust. It's been working fine for me the last year.

    Windex will neutralize it and is a lot easier to deal with than boiling water (the other recommended solution). Before I clean the barrel I just get a patch sopping with windex and run it down the barrel, and use a lightly windex-dusted paper towel to wipe the receiver and end of the barrel and other pieces that may have received gunshot residue. Then I clean as normal with CLP and regrease.

    Seems to work well.

    Cleaning after corrosive ammo

    Hello gents,

    I just picked up my first surplus rifle, Mosin M38 (pics down below), and I was wondering what techniques you guys use to get the corrosive salts out of and off your firearm. I've heard of and read of many different ways to do it, but I was wondering if I could get your opinions on which method you prefer. Any tips on maintenance and care would be appreciated as well. Thanks again.
