anybody know the best way to remove comoline from an old rifle? I've gotta find some way to clean my new carbine...
Heat. Somewhere between 120 degrees and 170 degrees. 180 is flashpoint for cosmo. Some guys use their ovens, a black bag in the sun, some guys even use boiling water. If you use water don't flush the waste down the drain. The cosmo will settle in your pipes and cause you some problems.anybody know the best way to remove comoline from an old rifle?

I take off all my metal parts and soak them in a big pan of kerosene and lay it in the sun for al day . This will dissolve and loosen the cosomoline . For the wood parts , I put them in a trash bag and lay them on the dashboard of my truck/car and let the heat slowly sweat out the cosmoline .
Tung oil works well too.BLO (Boiled Linseed Oil)
would I be able to get this or the tung oil at a hardware store or is it something I should order off of brownells or midwayusa ??BLO (Boiled Linseed Oil)
