luckily the mauser style blots are very forgiving......pull it back apart, and wipe down each piece with a clean lint free cloth (not a terrycloth towel) and apply a light coat of oil (too much oil attracts dust)..
the mauser style straight bolt limits the use of many scopes, but that really is a decent starter rifle

I'd get a hard bristle toothbrush as well, they work great for getting cosmoline off.

I have seen people pouring boiling water down the bore with a funnel. That will melt the cosmo off I bet.

Yesterday I dipped a patch in hoppes 9 and ran it through the barrel 20 times per patch. I kept changing to a fresh patch, dipped it again, and ran them through again.  Whatever I did a clean patch wouldn't come out. It would always be a dark grey color, not the llight brown color of the hoppes 9 solvent, although the grey color got lighter over time. Finally I gave up and ran a few dry patches, then sprayed some rem oil on the mop and ran that through 20 times, then ran a dry patch. Then I sprayed some oil on the disassembled bolt and put it back together and put it on the gun. I then wiped all exterior metal parts with a clean cotton patch with some rem oil on it.

The gun is old, its going to take a while to clean. Id also get a jag. They work a lot better than the eye hole heads.





Jags jam the cleaning patch against the rifling, making better contact and friction than the loose-fit eyelets.

Mines came with 2 plastic jags. I spent about 2 minutes trying to figure out how to get the patch on there other than just stabbing it on, because then the patch would come loose when I'm pulling the rod out.

Yup, theyll do that. You place the patch over the mussel, and then push the jag down on top of it into the barrel.

you do not pull it back out....the patch goes one way only....
the softer jags are better, because you could burr your rifleing with a harder one

my cleaning rod isn't long enough to protrude out the other end of the barrel. I'm thinking of buying another cleaning kit just to get more metal pieces to screw on to make it longer.

You'll most likely be told that again if you ever get a girlfriend.
