Default Kimber Barrel rust.

Hey all. I got a Kimber pro crimson carry II a while back and carrie it for a while with an inside the waistband holster. I guess from moisture the barrel started rusting to the point where I had to take steel wool to it. Is there anything that I can treat the barrel with so that it will not rust? I ask this because I would like to carry it, but I dont want to have to clean it everytime I carry it. Or is this normal and Im just spoiled from carrying my Glock?

I have had a Kimber Custom II for well over a year now, and I have heard quite a few complaints about rusty barrels. The only thing that I treat my barel with is a good cleaning every time it comes with me to the range, and before the gun goes back together, I wipe the barrel, slide, and frame down with a silicon cloth. The silicon repells moisture and gives the finish on the frame and slide a nice even black luster.

Yes it is the same Kimber. This time I am looking for something I can coat the barrel with to avoid the rust. Thanks for your very helpful response

Thank you, I might try a silicon cloth, but is there some special coating you can buy and put on it that will prevent it from rusting?

Might try using Fluid Film. A lot of members are using it and testing it out, so far it is working wonderful.

Maybe that is more helpful.

It's called elbow grease.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Shihan beat me to it but I was going to recommend fluid film. It's a great product.
