Dave - Any heavy duty oil should do the trick, when it happens to me I use the 4/0 steel wool plus break free and heavy duty teflon based oil....they will let it dry over night then will make sure the surface is dry and clean before applying Birchwood Cold Gun Blue (or similar products check out Midway USA for other bluing products), let it dry and then use the steel wool on the Blued surfaces, repeat the process until satisfied......it seems like I have to do this after every hunting season....

As many rifles as I own, I have used this technique for years and years...we are talking about surface rust and not deep scratches or dings on the barrel or action??

Dave - With the upcoming annual after Christmas Hunt down in GA, the weather forecast is soggy one, they are calling for 90% and 100% chances of rain. I was going to take down some nice rifles with me, like the McWhorter, Colt-Cooper, Kimber. But have changed my mind due to the amount of rain they are calling for. Going to take down some less expensive rifles and will check them over when the season is over, surely they will get some surface rust on them, because of all the rain, so I will check them closely and will only use one (Remington 700 LTR with the Leupold 3-9 VX-R scope)...already have some fingers cut out to go over the end of the barrel...to protect against mud and the rain......looks like a wet week and weekend coming up.....

So will have the steel wool with me and the break free, just in case......

Dave - Like Tree asked, is it surface rust of something worst??

Dave - I would think about ordering you a new barrel, that is some major surface rust..Wow, that is a lot of rust...I was thinking it was a minor surface rust but that is some serious rust...wonder what the inside of the barrel looks like...Find someone with a bore scope to check out what the inside look like.....

Dave try some WD-40 and fine steel wool first. For the heavy stuff WD-40 and a penny. Use the penny to lightly rub the spots I think you will be surprised at the outcome.

Per Bo's comment, you'll want to check out the bores carefully.  BT's WD-40 and fine steel wool suggestion is good, also see if you can find some Flitz polish.  Looks like you'll need to reblue regardless. Were these stored in the case?  Take a look at all of your guns, give them a rubdown with oil to make sure you head off additional projects.

I once got an old single shot shotgun that someone had left out in the rain.  Original intention was to get it professionally reblued, but the cost was higher than the value of the gun. So I took some fine emery cloth to the barrel and got it down into almost all white metal.  Wiped it down with alcohol and sprayed with a rattle can. To this day, the metal is rust free. The paint is not all that durable, but it has prevented new rust. Something like using cerakote may be worth a try. Just my 2 cents worth.  I never pursued the issue of completely redoing the shotgun, as it needs new internal parts, and spares are not readily available. When fired, the shotgun opens up on its own.  Very disconcerting.
