Default whats best for this gun?

a friend has gave me an nef r92 22lr with 4inch barrel to fix, its fine mechanically but it has specks of rust everywhere. even down in the crevices, and the cylinder has a few small holes in it from the rust. i thought of using a wire cleaning brush with solvent and oil then just blue it. however i have heard of permatex rust treatment that destroys rust then coats the metal to protect it. with the cylinder like it is i'm leaning toward permatex but i haven't used it before. what do ya'll think? thanks

The cylinder has holes?
Aside from that Clp and steel wool should be fine. Tough to tell without pics.

[QUOTE=mountainman13;898291]The cylinder has holes?

there very tiny where the rust was, not very deep as a toothpick barely catches on them. but they are there, its going to be a woods gun but i don't want the rust to get worse. didn't know about the permatex stuff, just want to get rid of the rust then either blue or if the permatex works it will kill rust and color the metal black. thanks

sounds like pitting not holes.

Rust is like cancer. It must be either completely removed or killed or it WILL come back. Phosphoric acid will chemically alter rust from Iron Oxide to Iron Phosphate. It could be prepped and blued after treatment. Bead blasting comes to mind to get into the pits and even out the surface.

What's best for it?

Get rid of it! I could take it off your hands (if you want me too).

All you have to do is pay shipping.
