    I was going to use a product from Home Depot to clean the rust off an old project. It was $25 a gallon, so I opted for a 2 liters of pepsi for $1.25. Pretty decent results after a couple of days. It could probably use 2 more days of soaking. Anyone else ever use this cheap sourse of phosphoric...

    About a year ago I attached to a sidewall inside my safe an 3x6 inch magnetic "pad". I used it to hold some magazines. I have a dehumidifier in my basement but nothing inside the safe itself. Yesterday, when I removed the magazines I noticed slight rust on both the magazine and "pad". Today I...

    Have had my Smth and Wesson PPK (blued version) for a little over a year. I have noticed brownish tinged areas in a few areas of the trigger guard. No pitting or roughness and really only visible depending on the strength and direction of light. I' m guessing that the original factory blueing...

    ...but now believe the rust-like colored lines i see inside my sig barrel is copper fouling.

    I have a smoker just like the one in the picture, except mine is covered in rust. I once tried to sand the rust off with a wire wheel attached to a drill but that didn't get very deep and it took forever. After watching some You Tube videos I was thinking of trying that but I don;t know how much...

    This past summer i bought my first new gun, a bolt action 30-06 marlin XL7. This replaced my very heavy 870 with a riffled scoped barrel that i have been using for the last 4 years as a deer gun. i was looking at my riffle last night and noticed some light surface rust on the bolt. i bought...

    I recently inherited a Marlin 336 30-30 from 1968. It has some surface rust on the receiver and also a bit in chamber and a good size ring of it about halfway down the bore. I don't want to harm the rifling b/c its still very sharp, rifle almost looks un-fired for being so old, So how do I...

    Is it just me or does anyone else here curl up into a little ball and cringe every time someone mentions "just a little surface rust" when describing a firearm for sale or description of a firearm they own? If any, I repeat any of my firearms had even a microscopic speckle of rust on them, only...
