    Hi you know if you can get the wax in spray form? Just be quite difficult to get everywhere especially inside the barrel if the wax is semi solid..

    Hi mate, no it would be impossible to find it in a spray form as it's solid and sticky (and stinky lol)
    A pull through using a rope and a piece of cloth would do it. As for the small parts and corners you can use ear cotton sticks

    Well few changes,legs broke off due to weight so off the grass and wooden stand to solve that issue,tried stronger mix of washing soda with alot better results but not sure how much if any this will increase the cleaning rate..will keep a good eye on it...threw in a few more pictures of cleaned up barrel/receiver with bolt,extractor and guides laying next too...will have to clamp receiver back together and put a small stitch on to hold it in its original going to rerun the bolt components back through the bath to get the last few bits of scale off and want to see if i can actually get the bolt and pin freed up so i can pull the whole bolt assembly apart,really want to be able to cycle the action...fingers crossed im an optimist!
