Pitting on ANY gun reduces it's value - why? Because it is an indication that the gun was not properly cared for! I have owned guns for 35 years and NONE of them have ANY rust or pitting. Keep them cleaned and oiled. If you don't shoot them, oil them at least once a year anyway. Preventing rust and pitting is not hard, it requires less than 10 minutes a year once a gun has been cleaned and oiled after use.
