Assuming fresh water submersion its quite simple. Disassembly dry then clean with gun cleaner light gun oil and reassemble. Same for stock but light linseed on stock. If salt water I cant honestly say. Good luck

completely disassemble them, including the stocks.
cover all metal components with oil, it really doesn't matter what oil you use, heck, i have even used engine oil.
as for the wood stocks, wipe them clean and place them somewhere to completely dry out, you do not want to re-install them if they are even slightly wet.
