Any Ideas on how to remove dried cosmoline from M1 Garand chamber?

Tried Mineral spirits, and Brownells degreaser

I seem to remember the old military way was to soak the part in gasoline.

What Anon said. I seem to remember #1 kerosene soak, as well, works.

If uncomfortable with gasoline, the kerosene/diesel fuel in a mechanics parts washer will do.

Also, very hot water (preferably steam) through a pressure washer.

I bought a little hand held steam cleaner from Walmart for 25 bucks a few years ago to de-cosmoline a SKS. It worked great.

Well whatever is adhered itself inside the chamber is so far existing, all items listed above.

But still open to ideas
