    Does the term "wd-40" mean anything to you?

    Welp, thats about all i got. Spray wd-40 on the rusted areas, use your basic barrel brush and gently work the rust away.

    I'd strip the rest of the gun just to check and be safe.

    Mix 50/50 Shooters Choice Bore Cleaner and Kroil "The Oil That Kreeps" patch your barrel well, let sit, then bore brush dipped in mixture well. Dry patch.. repeat a few times if you think it's needed. Go shoot clean again.

    The 25 auto barrels are easy to access.

    Field strip it, then brush it out with ATF,

    to break up the rust. Let it soak in, unless

    you're going to be assisting James Bond tomorrow.

    Then lube it with Mobil1.

    I think its pretty much the same as Mr Miyagi's number 1 rule:

    Wipe on, wipe off???


    But using super fine steel wool, or even burlap, and then a cotton cloth to remove the excess.

    in the barrel? Kano Kroil and a bore brush and patches until they come clean. then oil with something like Rem-Oil or similiar type of oil.

    is there rust anywhere else on the pistol?

    a soft cloth and some Kroil and just buff it out. Kano Kroil is one wonderful product and very versatile. has become my go to product for lots of things. the stuff lasts a long time too. i have two 8 oz. cans, and have only used about half of one of them in over a year and a half. cost me about $9 per can.

    Stay away from WD 40............Don't even spray this crap on your rod and reels.........yes it will loosen nuts and bolts, so will soap and water.............Don't expect this to prevent rust on your gunns unless you have them soaking in vats of this crap..................

    Need help rusting?

    Why do you want to rust? :D
    Anyway, just use WD40 or some other penetrating lubricant, ad working at it with a bristle brush.
