I've seen a lot of inquiries about the SKS asking "how do I get the stock off?" This video explains it pretty well. I personally don't know much about C&R but thought this may be a good place to post the info. And maybe you C&R guys will know of this site, I have never seen it before tonite. None the less an interesting video. The site also has a great deal of info I've never seen before.

here it is

Hello, I?m the new guy on the block, Just found this site today (3-18-04) and had to put my two cents in,
The video your talking about is from surplusrifle.com. And he does slam them around some, the man?s no genius but you can get info on guns you may not know how to dissemble yourself by watching. I found that he sells a CD that has all his films and a bunch of other good info on it. Basically it?s the whole site on disk. Check his CD & book combo?s before you buy just the CD. This is how I learned to dissemble an M1-Garrand, I don?t have one, but now I know how. I called myself ?Oldgunner? because, #1. I?m now 52 and #2. I?ve been shooting guns from the age of five or so. My love?s are old bolt-action military rifles (7) but also have an AR-15 a few SKS?s and I?m thinking about putting together an AK-47 just for the fun of it. Hope I can add a little now and then that?s useful to someone.

Sounds like we like and/or own the same stuff.

Since I am your age, I must dispute your definition of old!

But, I like your name anyway.

"Wipe Out" Any good?

Hello Custer,
It?s just that I feel old, you know when you remember people complaining about that ?Elvis guy? on TV last night and how they could only show him from his middle on up, your starting to get up there in years. And the weather up here in North central Illinois is not good for my Arthritis and Carpal tunnel making winter almost impossible to get out and shoot, I?m getting into using scopes and pistol-grip stocks for comfort. I find I can?t wrap my hand around those rifle stocks any more, something like an AR-15 or thumbhole stock is best. I love my old Mauser?s and Nagant?s, I just don?t expect to hit much with the way I?ve got to hold them now. I now spend a lot of time collecting gun info on building, cleaning and basic gunsmithing, I find I?m getting more into the mechanics of the hobby.
OK now for the question.
I would like to know if anyone out there has used ?Wipe Out? to clean their guns and how well it worked, It?s foam you shoot into the barrel. It expands to fill the barrel and after you let it sit for 15 minutes or so you just wipe it out with a patch. Does it work?

Never tried Wipe Out, but it sure sounds interesting.

What I am going to try is shooting some grease into the barrel of my Mosins when they are hot from shooting. Weather permitting, I plan to do that today at the range.

I have been told grease in a hot barrel does wonders for getting it clean when you get home. Apparently any grease will work and since I have a aerosol can of white lithium grease, I am going to fill up the barrel with that.

An alternate technique is to load up a lot of grease on a bore swab and grease up the barrel using a cleaning rod.

Grease or Moly?

Oldgunner back again,
All that grease seems like it would be a mess; I treat all my barrels with a Moly bore treatment every time I finish cleaning the gun. It gets into the metal and makes cleaning easier the next time. Just run a dry patch through to remove the excess before shooting, I?ve been told you?ll get a little more velocity from the round when you Moly treat. And a lot of long-range target shooters Moly coat (dry film) their bullets for that little extra speed. Another great thing is to give a shot of Kroil or Silikroil into the bore before you leave the range; they both will get under all the crud and loosen it by the time you get home. I?ve been surprised how good this stuff is, once you use Kroil you?ll never use WD-40 again. As far as Wipe Out, I put the address below if anyone wants to look at it. And you all should take a look at KG Coatings, they make ?Gun Kote? gun finish and you can get itfrom their site. a lot cheaper than at Brownells. KG has a ton of good things for us gunners. Get together with another gunner friend a buy a gallon of Kroil, you?ll both love the stuff. They also have a deal that if you buy a gallon you get a sample can (full size) of any of their spray-on products for something like $31.00 with the shipping. I tried the Moly Film and found it?s as good as Midway?s Moly Film.

http://www.kgcoatings.com/ Makers of Gun Kote Finishes, Also check under ?Bullet & Bore coatings? for their Moly coatings.

http://www.kanolabs.com/ Makers of ?Kroil & Silikroil? also have dry Moly coat for bullets (Molyfilm)
