just bought an awesome rust free 1939 tula and after what must have been 3 hours of punching the barrel with a .308 brush and hundreds of patches, the barrel is just as dirty as when I started.

Tips one how/what to use?

First :welcome: to our group.

You just may have to fire it to see if that helps.

Can you post pics of the barrel? I had a mauser with a black barrel that I never could get clean, I had to replace the barrel. I would try patches soaked with hot water, that might cut it. I tried those ammonia based cleaners and they didnt work, they seemed to make it look worse. There are others here with more experience than I though. They might chime in with ideas. Mosins sure are fun to shoot!! Good luck!!

often they will shoot just fine and clean up better after you shoot them

Had a 1914 dated Enfield that looked like a sewer pipe after what seemed like days of scrubbing and patch-work. Took it to the range, put a few rounds thru 'er and was shiny as could be after I cleaned it when I got home

Thanks everyone. I will give shooting and cleaning a go when this snow goes away. I tried to do a photo but was having a hard time with it for some reason, I'll try to again soon.

Welcome 031131.
Glad you found us.
Let us know how your Mosin Nagant performed on the range.
Your "dirty barrel Mosin" might be a great shooter.

Met vriendelijke groet,

Martin
