It was between the steyr or a mosin, I've never seen one of these straight pull carbines before, so opted for one, hell mosin are everywhere

brake cleaner. It melts it off. Engine cleaner same deal. I usually just clean the heck using Hoppes, unless its the metal parts, then I use the brake/engine cleaners

Just be careful if you get the engine/brake cleaners on the wood it will mess it up.

I use 409 on the wood, and brake clean on all metal parts once I have removed them from the wood stock. Be sure to oil up the metal parts soon after cleaning because they flash rust fairly quickly once you have stripped off all of the gunk.

sorry about the ****ty pics ipod camera and overhead light doesnt go together. ill try to take some at the range tommorrow morning, also post pictures of the grouping. Its alot better than what i was expecting, not in the best shape as you can see there is some pitting on the barrel, and the upper stock has a crack in it, the bore is decent, rifling itself looks okay but it appears there maybe some pitting in there as well, maybe shooting it tommorow before class will loosen some more **** in the bore up. take the bolt apart and putting it back together is simple, but installing it back into the receiver is a bitch ( i was exspecting this after watching some videos on you tube) the action is considerably stiff but im pretty sure its just the way it was designed. Tommorow ill post my results at the range also with some more pictures.

Also i was really surprised with the length of the gun, i knew it was gonna be short but i didnt think it was gonna be THAT short, i kinda like it :), but since this is the first gun i have bought myself i fell in love as soon as i opened up at the gun shop.
