      Get a long narrow box that will hold the gun. Cut a small hole in one end and a larger hole - big enough to fit over your clothes dryer vent - and tape the box over the dryer vent.

      Do your laundry. Put the laundry in the dryer. Run the dryer.

      When the clothes are dry the cosmoline should be melted.

        Well there's the wrap it in news paper, put it in a black garbage bag and put it on the dash of your car method.

        Best thing I've used was Easy-Off oven cleaner, but I wouldn't use that on a lot of things. lol

          Won't that constrict the exhaust for the dryer?

            Just make sure the small hole at the opposite end of the box stays clear of obstructions. The heat builds up in the box and the exhaust blows over the gun, melting the cosmoline.

              Put it in a black bag out in the sun. Wipe, repeat. Hairdryer works too.

                  I am guessing the hot water method will do the trick to remove the dried on glaze. Will let you know when I get around to trying, probably on Monday. Going to enjoy the weekend with Brendan before he has to go back to work.

                    They may be legal here in AR.

                          with two M1 carbines from CMP I was fortunate to get during the warmer months of the year, I used the brown wrapping paper (didn't want newsprint ink) in a plastic garbage bag in the sun bit. Finished up with that denatured alcohol (use gloves !!)

                            I tried this method on 90+ degree days and didn't do much to an SKS. Many of the methods mentioned here didn't work for me.

                            Eventually, I set up a table at the range, grabbed a couple of rolls of paper towels, plugged in a heat gun, popped in a Barney Miller DVD and had at it. Slow process, but worked.
