Mosin Nagant questions
Hello, I have been the proud owner of a Russian Mosin Nagant for a little more than a year now, and I have a few questions regarding cleaning. I heard that the primers of the 7.62x54R had some sort of corrosive salt in them, and that the best way to clean the barrel was simply boil water, pour it down the barrel and swab until the patches come out clean. This coincides with the second question, I was cleaning it today, and I noticed that the laminated stock was becoming cloudy in areas water had touched, so I am curious if there is another way to clean the barrel, and if I should sand the stock with very fine paper to get the laminate finish off, or if I should take another approach to stripping and refinishing. Thank you!
