||Nice rifle, Tula 1936 Hex, as advertised, s/n match, stock in great shape, no rust at all,
barrel was not crowned, packed in oil and was easy to clean using odorless mineral spirits from home depot.
Get a 2" section of PVC and a cap, no need to solvent weld it in place, just friction fit it.
Place the barrel in the pvc pipe, then slowly pour the mineral spirits into the pipe.
Let the barrel sit in the solvent and gently agitate it every 10 min. and then
remove barrel and invert it and repeat.
Same for the bolt, trigger and magazine, get a plastic storage bin, small size, and let them
soak in the solvent and it will dissolve the cosmoline.
Clean up the stock while the other parts are soaking in the solvent.
Nice to shoot a piece of history.
Thinking about a Boyd stock to replace the original to jazz it up a bit.
