Remington 870 rust?

Postby ChasinTail » Wed Sep 25, 2013 11:48 pm

I have a new black/synthetic 870 that rusts easier than any gun ive ever seen.

What would be a simple and cheap way to prevent rust?

I have an 870 that was made in 93 and will rust up really easy. I just clean it up now and again. At some point I'll probably get it dura coated or cerakote.

Get all the rust off first, I use Hoppes #9 but anything that will remove it will do.
Then coat it with Birchwood Casey Barricade...good stuff

My 870 was badly rusted. I used 0000 steel wool and cleaned off the rust then painted the gun. Check out the shotgun forum

I have the same gun. It's made with crappy material!! I had mine blasted and coated. Does yours at least grab shells out of the chamber? My brother took it all apart and did some extra machining to it so it would work right. Best way to prevent that thing from rusting is buy a real gun and leave that one in the cabinet at home. Hated mine!!
If I ask a question, I don't want your opinion. I want facts.
Don't tell me something you think, tell me something you know.
It's easier to say I don't know, than make something up.
Although, being a forum the next guy will know more no matter what.

When my express was new it would rust if you looked at it funny. I could oil the heck out of it, put it away, and the next week it would be dry. It was like the porous nature of the rough finished steel was drinking up the oil. Eventually it drank its fill and quit rusting any noticeably easier than any of my other guns.

Thanks for the replies guys.

Pretty ridiculous how easy they rust. I'll try some of those.

I think I'm just clean it up good and look around and try to find a Winchester SXP or an old Nova to trade for.

Even though mines been a pain with the rust there's no way I'd get rid of it. Its never failed me and it's been covered in mud, emptied, washed, reloaded and never had a problem.
