honestly....  take the parts to your local car wash, put a few coins in and blast it off. 

OR...  get several cold adult beverages, make sure the kids are out of ear shot - you will start at some point to scream obscenities - and get out some break free, mineral spirits, or some simple green...   then, put a lot of elbow grease into it.  Oh, and clear your calendar for the whole day LOL

I have two rifles that are covered in cosmoline.  Currently they're in my bedroom closet.  There is nothing better than the smell of waking up to cosmoline! Cheesy

If you have $850 to spend, get one of these: http://www.brownells.com/gun-cleaning-chemicals/professional-cleaning-systems/gun-cleaning-tanks/pw-26-parts-washer-sku112026000-1705-6217.aspx

Congratulations, you have located the only two firearms related items in-stock at an online retailer!

Very few guns are actually "illegal guns."  A gun misappropriated by a criminal is no more of an "illegal gun" than a stolen car is an "illegal car."

Someone told me WD-40 works well, but I've never had the opportunity to try it. It's worth a shot. You probably already have some.

I'd be interested to hear if it works, if you give it a try.

Lol yeah something most people don't know.

I disassembled my rifles, placed all the parts in a settub, covered with hot water and poured about 4 cups Simple Green in. Let it overnight. Turn on hot water while draining the old cold, and let sit for a few minutes again. Removed each piece while running under hot water and then sprayed them with WD-40 and placing them on a cloth. Completely cleaned of the stuff. Note I also complete broke down the bolt.. Not just removed it.

This took all the cosmolene off. It was painless and the Simple Green did all the work overnight. The WD-40 is basically to displace most of the water not really to protect the parts. I then clean, polish and then lub and protect them with Fluid Film... Or whatever you wish to use.
