Can moly/teflon be usedover a rifle that has been parkerized for a while? I was thinking about doing a rifle in it, if all I need to do is clean off the oil and such.

Any experience out there?

TIA

I've done this with success, but you'll have to scrub the heck out of it to get the grease out. I used HOT water and dish washing liquid on everything metal and then dried everything out in the oven. THEN I scrubbed it with alcohol for good measure.

Sumo, I'm with tootech and nocompromise on this. It can be done but you need to degrease thoroughly. I boil the parts in a water/detergent solution followed by an industrial solvent like varsol. Please do wear a proper respirator when dealing with solvents (lacquer thinner, etc.) as they can do nasty things to you over time.
