So without my knowledge it seems around last summer (2014) my son took a couple of my Mosins out for an afternoon of surplus ammo fun and neglected to clean them before putting them back. A little thing I discovered last night. Not too good for the resale value. After some extensive cleaning I got the T-53 to where there's minor pitting but I'm sure it'll still fire fine. Now the 1938 Tula. I've wore out 2 brushes and there's still quite a bit of rust. Is there a better method than Hoppes, remoil & scrubbing my ass off? Contemplating dipping a brush in navel jelly.
