cleaning and preserving m1866

Posted by Charles Minetree on Saturday, 7 January 2012, at 6:56 p.m.

To all: I am thoroughly confused over the issue of what method,chemicals, oils, etc to use on my Springfield Model 1866. I have read the article on this site and many others. They all seem to contradict one another. My rifle looks to be in good condition with a brown patina. The bore looks great. I'd like to hear from all who will share with me their preservation and cleaning techniques. Thanks. Chuck
