Just learned about this forum today. I think I have an urgent question.
I have a Mosin Nagant. I shot 20 military-grade rounds through it last Friday.
I took it home and cleaned it, but there was a lot going on in the house, and I couldn't clean it to greasy perfection. There was a tiny bit of black on the cotton when I finished up.
A week has passed.
I intend to clean the gun again tonight. But after a week of cleaning it last, do you fellas think there is severe corrosion damage in the barrel, now?
Is the gun safe to shoot?
Should I take it to a gunsmith, now?
Time to clean it again.
Ignorant of gun cleaning,
