Default Rusty gun,

I found an old shotgun thats got some rust on it from lying in the wet ground, would anyone be able to give me the name of a good product to dissolve the rust? Thanks.

Some people recommend KROIL. Used in conjunction with 000 or 0000 steel wool.

Understand that nothing will put steel back that has gone away. Soaking in a good penetrating oil, and then the least abrasive material you can find. KROIL is penetrating oil on steroids- PB Blaster is also pretty good stuff. Coat, let soak for a day, use 0000 steel wool or a Choreboy copper pot scrubber, either wetted with penetrant.

For light rust trip286 or Marlinman are correct. For heavy rust a product like navel jelly actually dissolves the rust but removes all bluing it touches also.

So will the steel wool. A dremel w a brass wire wheel will help alot on large areas of rust. Just dont push to hard. Use very light contact.

Blue Wonder cleaner does a good job on rust and doesn't hurt any of the remaining blue. What I use (with steel wool when needed) to deal with rust. By the way, the Blue Wonder is a pretty decent bore cleaner too.
