How To Clean A Rifle And Bayonet

Military Handbooks: The Plattsburg Manual

Get a rag and rub the heavy grease off; then get a soft pine stick,

pointed at one end, and with this point remove the grease from the

cracks, crevices and corners. Clean the bore from the breech. When the

heavy grease has been removed, the metal part of the gun, bore included,

should be covered with a light coating of 3-in-1 oil. Heavy grease can

be removed from the rifle by rubbing it with a rag which has been

saturated with gasoline or coal oil.
