Helpful Tip For Surplus Rifles

I used MEK (Methyl ethyl ketone)today to clean off the cosmoline off of a SKS I had bought awhile back.

While it worked wonders to clean the cosmoline off it apparently had a deleterious effect on the finish of the stock where it had touched, nearly bleaching a portion.

So helpful hint to others; Keep the MEK off the wood parts of the surplus rifle you are cleaning up for its first trip to the range.

Now I am thinking of stock replacements.
