My uncle wants me to clean his rifle...but I've never seen one of these. I've got a '98 Mauser and a '03 Springfield. Is it very much different from these two? If its close I'll be able to figure it out...but if its kind of odd ball I'll get stuck. I'd really like to finish the job and get it together again. He doesn't shoot anymore, so I think he just plans to hang it on the wall. He is a Pacific Theater Vet....Navy man! Last month he started talking about his experiences during WWII...first time ever. Thats what got this clean up thing started. Thanks, in advance, for the help. Any info is appreciated!
