    Hello everyone I've google searched how to remove rust from gun barrels but haven't found much. I found a rifle barrel in my fathers basement after he passed and learned it was a ceskoslovenska zbrojovka a.s. brno a 8mm Mauser. The inside looks pretty good but the outside had a lot of rust i used steel wool and got the initial rust off, it doesn't seem too pitted I was wondering a good and easy way to get the rust and blue off. I figured I would re blue it if I could get it looking halfway descent. It is just the barrel, the bolt carrier and the trigger. The stock with it is a sportster that dosnt quite fit it Ill have to work on that too. do you guys think it is worth it?

    You can have it sandblasted. This type of finish will cover a lot of scarring from rust. Are you revaluing it or having it done?

    If that doesn't handle it you may want to reconsider shooting it.
