I ran across this stuff on a work party in 1964. wreaked a uniform, boots, sox , the manicure, etc. Official remover in the Marines is boiling water in a 55 gal drum. Boil for a couple months. What works is gas. Yeah I know. Spare me... I also helped put it on a 100 old BAR's that were going to some South American country.So, there is a chance I might buy a rifle stored in cosmoline. I have only cleaned up some small parts stored in cosmoline. A few questions.
- How far back would you consider a gun stored in cosmoline?
- How do you clean the steel parts?
- How do you clean the wood?
- Is this a really nasty piece of work or not?
