    I know many of you reccomend Johnson's Paste Wax as a release agent for glass bedding. How do you get it off when you're finished? Is there some chemical/liquid that will remove it more easily than simply scrubbing the action with hot soapy water?

    What would be wrong with rubbing alcohol?

    Any gun oil will take it off. Oil has enough natural solvency to cut wax instantly. Rem oil is 50% mineral spirits according to their MSDS. This makes it a good cleaning oil.

    I polish it to a shine with a cloth. The layer that remains is a rust barrier, and looks good.
