    Took a swing by Guns & Ammo Warehouse in Manassas today to pick up cleaning supplies and a case for the Mosin.

    I asked if they had any SKSs around, they had one, but it was too funky for what I want. The sales guy (very nice, informative, but a little red around the neck) mentioned that they had a couple M1s if I wanted "a real gun" :mamoru:

    I picked up some "7.62 Solvent," some Australian stuff specifically for cleaning up after this dirty ammo, so we'll see how that goes. The hard case I bought is too short for the Mosin :o

    Uglcarfan stripper clips should be here any day, so next weekend might be the first range report :x:

    Good luck. Why don't we have pictures of this Mosin, yet?

    Fwiw sweets 7.62 isn't about cleaning dirty ammo, its an ammonia based cleaner to remove copper fouling. Be sure not to leave it in the barrel too long.
