    i laid my sks out in the sun in a tray made from aluminum foil and quickly got rid of the bulk of the cosmo/ suggestion from a friend of mine who has an army surplus store/ it worked well for me/ i did have to do some touch-up work on the small nooks and crannies/ to be expected

    Go to the CMP website. If anyone knows how to clean cosmo, they do.

    They are 1500-2000 M1 Garands behind filling back orders. The boys on there have seen rifles so full of cosmo that you can't get a MW guage in them. Someone on there will tell you the best method. Just ask on the forum page.

    I was lucky. My service grade was spotless.

    Alant – Hurt the finish on a rack grade rifle? The finish god and country intended that service rifle to have consists of what ever Cosmoline can’t scraped and/or wiped off. Jon Sharp
