I don't shoot my guns very often. I have a shotgun (rem 870), a revolver (rug security six), and a semi auto pistol (kel tec p11). I just got them all out today to fondle them. I noticed that all of them have a very very light orange-ish hue to them (down the bore). hmmmmmm....... It made me slightly scared that they were starting to rust. If you do think it is rusting, please tell me how to nip this problem in the bud before it get's too bad. I've heard that steel wool will remove rust from the gun surface, but I've never heard anybody say that it's ok to scrub the bore with steel wool. what do I do? or is it possible that it isn't rust? I found some other site where somebody posted that sometimes new guns get orangy copper fouling in the barrel, and that you need to clean it with some copper solvant a few times until the gun is broken in? does that sound like what it could be? I'm assuming that it's the copper foulding because I really don't think my guns should be rusting.... I live in a very dry environment and I always clean my guns thoroughly with Rem Oil after shooting. Maybe do I need to oil them up more often? even when they haven't been shot? Maybe I should be running some light oil on them once every couple months? if you think this is a rust problem, please tell me how to cure it, and further prevent it.
