im having the worst luck with my Yugo M24/47 8mm Mauser!

the bolt is in great shape and firing pin looks excellent! good strong spring inside....it shot great when i got it, but started snapping on me shortly after. i took the bolt apart and cleaned it (which obviously hadnt been done in years) and it shot great that afternoon at the range...however, two weeks later, its snapping on me again...i once again took the bolt apart and cleaned it, and its shooting great again!!

the first time i cleaned it with "Rem Oil" but it didnt seem to help for very long, i used a can of spray lube on it the second time, which is thinner and im sure wont do much better!!...what would be a good Product to lube the inside of my bolt and keep this gun shooting for more than one week at a time????

ok, this give me a good place to start. ill clean it with a pipe cleaner and some hot water. the first time i took it apart, it was caked with a rusty orange goop. the second time i had it apart, i noticed some more of it that had broken loose after shooting it again, that i had missed the first time.. years of storage hurt it more than it helped it. it cleaned up good and looks like new inside the bolt now, its just drying out

im a locksmith, i keep a good supply of Graphite on hand, would that or regular grease be ok for it - after its cleaned better???
