    If you are just looking to clean the wood and not refinish it, I use regular Hoppes cleaning fluid. It is a very gentle solvent that contains banana oil. It will remove the surface grime and dirt...

    It has worked well on the rifles I have used it on. I dont use it on my collectible milsurps unless it was the original finish that came in the rifle. I wouldn't use it on an Arisaka if that rifle...

    That's a great question. I purchased one with a tab and it wouldn't work on my 1941 Type 99. Purchased one without a tab and it fit perfectly. Are the tabbed ones for the Type 38?

    Since the bolt works fine and the firing pin didn't match to begin with, I would just get a new firing pin. Those rifles were designed to have the pins replaced every so often (as evidenced by your...
