I finally got around to cleaning the M96, noticed the bolt and carrier were still sopping wet with the lubricant from the factory (picked the rifle up in August 04 and I've put a few hundreds rounds through it). Any idea which lubricant they may have used? If not certain, any recommendations specific for the M96?

Break Free CLP. Or any other good CLP will work fine.

I think the question was, which lube did THEY use, not which lube HE should use.. http://calguns.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I have no idea, but I have a buddy with an M96, I could ask him if he knows.

At first I didn't understand what you were talking about. I had to google M96 to realize you weren't talking about a Swedish Mauser. http://calguns.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Can I ask where you got the M96 from and how much? Trader's in San Leandro is asking an arm and a leg for the M96 the last time I looked.

I got the M96 straight from Robinson, my FFL passed on the dealer price to me so I paid $1200.

To dwtt: I'm actually considering selling my M96 carbine so I can complete my 50BMG project. If you're interested, let me know. I'll also include some extras to make the deal even sweeter. I haven't listed in the For Sale section yet. The rifle is in VERY good condition, except for some finish wear on the barrel near the gas port and some brass nicks behind the ejection port (all are normal). Furniture is perfect. I can meet at your dealer if offer is reasonable. Best offer. -gloxter

FWIW Mug, I've used that Kleenbore stuff (Formula 3 or whatever) on my M96 since day one. Works fine for me - smells better than CLP too.

I'd suspect that yours won't be too picky about it either.

My buddy actually bought his from Traders.. I guess he'll need an extra arm or leg http://calguns.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Mugwump's got the right idea, get it straight from Robinson's that way you don't have to pay the markup if your dealer doesn't charge you extra.

Are the M96's legal to bring into Kalifornia? I've been intrigued by them and wanted to buy one before the ban.

The "California Carbine" which is pictured above is still legal in California, without the grip. It is shipped to your FFL just as pictured. I'm selling mine if you don't want to pay over $1,000 for a new one. They are VERY nice rifles. Mine gets everyone's attention wherever I shoot it. Interested? -gloxter

I would like to buy your M96, gloxter, but I don't know if I can offer you enough to get your interest. I'm also trying to get a .50 cal receiver built up and plan to use my tax return for that. My original plan was to save up and buy a M96 near the end of this year, so I don't have enough money right now. Of course, once I get my .50 cal done, I might get so involved with it that I'll lose interest in the M96 until next year. http://calguns.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Good luck in selling your M96 and building up your .50
