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.

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...

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