Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

I had gotten an Eddystone M1917 awhile back and I was having a hell of a time pushing the bolt home that last little bit. At first I though I just had to get used to the cock on close but after trying other peoples M1917 there just seemed to be something wrong with mine. I did a complete tear down of the bolt and there was old, waxy caked on grease all over the firing pin and firing pin spring. After soaking in kerosene for about a day and some hard scrubbing I got all the grease off and after replacing the grease with some oil the bolt throw home was pretty smooth as it should be for a cock on close gun. Afterwards though I got to thinking that while the lack of care caused problems with this rifle it seems grease could be a better choice on the firing pin spring. You hear over and over if it slides (which the bolt spring does) use grease if it moves use oil. If cared for properly and cleaned and re-greased every so often so it doesn't turn into a waxy mess it seems like it would be a better choice than oil. What do you guys think
No do not use grease.Degrease just as you did and run dry.
