Just finished cleaning the cosmoline off a Yugo SKS I purchased several months ago.
Had to wait for my wife to be out of town so she couldn't object to my using the oven. Hope the cosmo smell goes away before she gets back.
Anyway, that is the LAST time I buy anything with cosmoline on it. Cleaning it up just sucked rocks... tho www.surplusrifle.com was very helpful with disassembly instructions and advice.
