    Rust removal?

    A question that may not be entirely unrelated to my rifle having spent Easter living in a tent on a rainy Stewart Island...

    Whats the best option for removing surface rust from a blued barrel and action? Gun oil + elbow grease? CRC? Something else?

    Obviously 'buy a stainless rifle' is also an option, but I do quite like this one.

    Dont use anything abrasive. I used those green things in the kitchen for cleaning dishes and it took off the blueing

    #0000 grade steel wool + CRC (or WD-40, rem oil, whatever really) + elbow grease. Abrasive enough to remove rust but won't damage the finish. $15 will get you a life time supply of it at ehayes.

    +1 on what Toby said about the green kitchen scrubbers. Learnt that the hard way too.

    Some ATF and a bit of brass. Put ATF on the area and rub with the brass it will not harm the blue.

    DO NOT USE the Scotch Brite Pads, they WILL take your Bluing Off.

    Use 0000 Steel Wool.

    Cheers

    I faced the same problem recently, and was told to deal to the rust with gun oil and elbow grease which cleaned it up nicely.

    An oily bit a ruff clothing like an old jean leg with any old oil used in a saw action around the barrel works a treat.
