the only thing that i can think of is keep putting oil on your gun i am not sure if they do make a rust remover.

The best thing that I have found for taking care of rust is a gun cleaning kit, which includes the main weapons in kicking rusts but, a wire brush and rem oil. it may take a little time cleaning but it will look perty afterwards. Good luck gettin her back up to par. :thumbsup:

There's a line of products called Bore Blaster. One of the prducts in the line is a rust remover. I had a muzzleloader develop a little surface rust, and it worked pretty well to take it off. Just be sure to oil it well after using the remover. I think they make both a gel and a foam. My Walmart sells it.

If you use the wire brush don't get carried away or you will scratch the heck out of it.

Keep WD40 as far from your gun as possible. That is the last think you want on a gun.

Try "Flitz" brand metal polish. It'll remove the rust and not remove the bluing on your gun. Woorks great! :thumbsup:

Break Free, protects against rust. You could use that and a tooth brush. I wouldnt use a wire brush.

Here is a link to the Break Free CLP. It works great, we used it in Cuba on our Machine guns that were out in the rain four days in a row due to a hurricane. Took the rust right off ... K-FREE+CLP

I live in the rust capitol of the world. Doesn't even have to be raining and my gun will rust up because of the salt air. Usually has a little rust on it before I get home and then I get lazy and don't clean it and by the next weekend it's just horrible. Anyway, I use Rem. Oil and steel wool. Takes the rust off really well, but also some of the blueing so I use a blueing solution of the gun afterwards too.

Break free is great, and I put a little WD40 on it too.

QuackerTracker, why not use WD40 (Water Displacement 40) on a gun? I've always used it and never had a problem. I'm curious to hear why you are so against it.

i had to use steel wool one time on a gun i was restoring. it works great, but on the new guns you want to use the lowest grit you can buy, then just scrub a while. it your grit is too high it tends to take off the blueing.
