since this is OT: and one more with the bayonet for stunner effect: my friend picked up a mosin 91/30 from the gun store friday. it looks to be in excellent condition. it's stamped 1932. we went to the range yesterday and busted a few. that thing is a blast to shoot, espcially for the price. we both suck at shooting rifles, so at 100 yards and iron sites, we were just lucky to be hitting the paper. question though: what's the best way to clean these beasts? we think the ammo we were shooting was corrosive. we used the hot soapy water method, but that sure was a pain the ass. then we ran some copper solvent stuff through the barrel and topped it off with a little oil. cliffs: new mosin, fun as hell to shoot, but i dont know the best way to clean it.
