Rust removal

I just picked up a couple of older progressive reloaders. One is a Star in 44mag and the other is a Size O Matic 800B in 12ga. They both have some rust on them that I would like to remove. Is there anything better than steel wool and gun oil. How about the Rust/ Blue remover I have seen in the gun cleaning products. Any help would be great.

Thanks
John

    Got a Ruger No.1 and its got just the slightest hint of rust 'bout a quarter inch long and as wide as the thickness of a credit card and its right on the edge where the reciever meets the forend. Whats the best way to remove this or dissolve it w/o damaging the bluing?

    Hi, experts. I'm looking at a shotgun that has a spot of rust on the receiver about the size of an oval quarter. Is there a product that anyone can recommend that removes rust with out removing the bluing? If not, if untreated will the spot stay its present size? A friend says once rust starts it keeps spreading. If I sand it can anyone recommend a bluing product to re-blue the sanded spot? Finish questions and re-finishing is not my strong point. Thanks for any feed back. Jim

    I have a barrel from a very old pistol that has heavy rust. I want to take this down to bare metal. Short of sandblasting or a wire brush on my grinder, how can I do this. This is way past the chrome polish on a car bumper situation. Can I soak it in anything?

    Thanks,

    I have a Remington model 700 inline muzzleloader. It has several heavy rust spots inside the barrel and MANY small spots on the exterior. It happened when my basement flooded. How can I remove the rust? Thanks to all.

    I need to remove some rust from a blue S&W K frame and leave as much of the finish as possible. Who's got the secret for the best way to do it?
    Thanks,

    Howdy Pards,

    I know it's been discussed over and over again but, what are the best ways to remove surface rust from old shootin' irons (without leavin' 60 grit scratches of course)?!

    Thanks,

    Keep the area wet with KROIL for 24 hours and then use a brass pot scrubber be aware it will not remove blueing but the rust may already have done that under the rust on the spot[:(!]

    Then, when it is as clean as you can get it, coat it will several coat of a hard carnuba wax like Trewax. That will greatly slow the return of the rust.

    Brownells also sells bronze wool for this purpose.
