Think if I got a newer black wasr it'd still be drenched in Cosmoline? I picked one up from Bay Area Gun vault and the 10 days is over on the 29th, should I ask them to help me clean it if I buy some cleaning supplies at the shop? I want to get it to the range friday

you should do it yourself and save the $.

surplusrifle.com has a good write up but I think its down at the moment.

here's what others have done

I use wd40 and a rag to clean cosmoline. Seems to work for me...

Hair dryer, plenty of shop towels, break cleaner, and elbow grease.

Have fun!

you could use an oven to basically bake the rifle. The comsoline will melt off.
