New guy here from So. IL
« on: February 09, 2019, 07:45:57 PM »
Got an SKS that I've had for years and never shot.
Stayed in storage so long I decided to clean it although it looked good.  Boy was I wrong!  After fieldstripping it there was cosmoline galore in places unseen to the naked eye.
It's clean now & I'll be posting questions.
Nice to be here!

I'll post some pics when it warms up & I can take the oven cleaner to that nasty stock.   :))

Welcome to the site! Looking forward to eyeballing your SKS!
Yes, it's true - SKSs are not solitary creatures.

Nice of you to stop by Bryson. If you own a SkS come on in and stay awhile  chuckles1 joking : )

Welcome from a fellow rookie.
Please don't use oven cleaner on that stock. You'll damage the finish.
