    Hi All,

    <meta http-equiv="CONTENT-TYPE" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"> <title></title> <meta name="GENERATOR" content="OpenOffice.org 3.1 (Linux)"> <style type="text/css"> <!-- @page { margin: 2cm } P { margin-bottom: 0.21cm } --> </style> I heard that you can place metal parts of your gun on a low temperature in the oven and after an hour or so the cosmoline will melt/come off. Then afterwards you can boil it in hot water to get the excess then clean it with mineral spirits, let it cool and then oil it good.

    Does this sound about right? Any other pointers or easy ways to remove this crap? I don't feel like scrubbing. So any pointers but "Scrub it with..."

    Thanks,
    Trevor.
