To Clean Your Rifle
To take down the gun, if it is a .22-caliber rifle, you need only to unscrew the large screw on the underside of the receiver, when the barrel can be easily taken from the receiver and stock and you can now get at the barrel from the breech end.
Cut a patch of flannel 1 inch square, slip it into the slot of the cleaning-rod, dip it into the cosmic oil and run it through the barrel from the breech end. When the wiper has come out of the muzzle don't attempt to pull it back until you have removed the wiper. Never clean the barrel from the muzzle end, as you will almost be sure to spoil the rifling near the muzzle. Neither need you be afraid of using too many wipers, and never use anything but cosmic oil, or cosmoline, for cleaning the firing chamber and bore.
To clean the action take the screws out of the side of the receiver, when the lever, hammer and trigger can be removed. Wipe off all of the parts with a dry rag first and then with a rag with a few drops of either sperm or machine oil on it, but be careful not to get too much oil on them.
Rub the stock and hand guard with raw linseed oil and polish by rubbing them with your hand.
