Cleaning surface rust from barrel

7102 Views 14 Replies 14 Participants Last post by  rojkoh
Just acquired a SxS shotgun. I have cleaned the bores and they are very bright and clean. The exterior of the barrell has a couple spots that have some surface rust that I wanted to clean off. Can anyone explain the procedure for doing this. Thanks in advance for any input

It depends

I have used very fine steel wool and a few drops of gun oil to lightly go over surface rust areas. Be gentle or the bluing may come off as well. If so, then I would touch up the finish with cold blue. All the best...
