that water very likely ends up somewhere else on the firearm.
Understood. I did my best to blow out the water (with the WD 40) from the mechanisms I couldn't get into to wipe dry. My objective was to displace the water to a location I could reach with a rag.

Next I soaked all the mechanisms/moving parts with Rem Oil. I let it sit and run out. I wiped it down again.

Then I soaked all moving parts with Hoppes #9 Lubricating oil. I let that soak for 8 hours or so, wiped it down, and reassembled the gun. I'll store it in that condition until my next range trip. Then I'll wipe the gun dry before I shoot it with the exception of the bolt.
