Default Rust !!!!!!!

I now know despite good moisture control that a light coat of protectant on by handguns is a necessity.If done a Hoppes nine soak and an oil soak with a nylon brush scrub on my finished (one grey and two black) all metal guns with very little sucess.I tried super fine 0000 steel wool with again little results.I know there has to be a product out there that will help without trashing my finish ????????

Product made by Kano Labs called KROIL. Penetrating oil on steroids. I use it for a lot of things (better than PB Blaster, IMHO). Apply a coat, let set overnight, rub gun with coarse cloth, changing to clean spot frequently. Takes a lot of elbow grease, minimal damage to finish.

You can also try light oil and bronze wool.

Unless that steel wool is made from stainless steel, it will cause the rust. It leaves fine steel residue in the surface which acts as a "rust seed" to grow rust.

Kroil is very good. I uses Shooter's Choice spray on preservative on guns I won't be using for a while. never seen a speck of rust.

What are you using as a protectant? Hoppes gun oil? Try switching to Fluid Film. It's a lanonin based lubricant/penetrating oil that unlike most oils will actually kill the rust and stop it.

If you are storing them in a case a silcone treated sock can help protect against rust for the future as well as corrosion restistant paper.

When you return from the range, do you allow the firearms to "climatize" to the house before putting them away?

Storage in a gun case is not recommended. And neither is the closet in the main bathroom. Don't ask how I know, but I have learned a couple of lessons in my time.

I use and like Fluid Film, too.

Can you store a gun with a scope on it in a silicone treated gun bag? And that won't hurt the grips, either, will it? I'd like to get a couple for my two guns but I'm not sure if it is appropriate for my two guns. One has a rubber Hogue grip, the other has a laminated wood grip and a scope on it.

In my experience the bags don't hurt a thing and yes, they will fit over a scope.
