OK, after reading the other threads about this rifle, and then seeing that Big 5 has them on sale for $99.00, I decided to swing by their store today and take a look. They had three available, two 1944's and a 1938 M91/30. All looked sound, no cracks in the stock, and the bores all looked good. They have all been arsenal refinished. I ended up taking the 1938 rifle because it was the only one with all matching numbers, and it seemed to have the smoothest bolt action of the three. So, now that I have it, I was wondering if you could tell me the best way to clean up the abundant amounts of grease, and this waxy gunk all over the stock. Thanks!
