cleaning 91/30

do these rifles have that much crud in the barrel? bought it for my son early this summer and really just cant seem to get it clean. i have used window cleaner, hoppe's #9, and wd-40 with really no good results. wet patch first, brush next, a couple dry patches next, then the jag a few times till the patch is clean. go to run rem oil on the home stretch and that patch comes out looking almost as bad as the first.

Have you ever tried putting the cleaning rod with a brush in a drill? I cleaned up an abused Black powder that way once.

If your to busy to go hunting, your just to busy.

Plug the bore end at the muzzle, stand it up on the muzzle, fill the bore with Hoppe's #9 or Sweet's 7.62 or your favorite cleaner and let it sit for an hour or two. Then run a brush thru it vigorously. It may have dried cosmoline in there for a 100 years or so...

It's the cosmoline. Get some mineral spirits or paint thinner and let all the metal parts soak in it for 20 minutes or so. That should get rid of most of it, has for my three Mosin Nagants anyway.

WD-40 also works well to break down cosmoline, that what helped me clean mine.
