    Ran across this product at a car show. It may have some gun related uses, but I know there are a number of fellow motor-heads on TS.com that may find this information useful.

    Be VERY careful with rust removers on firearms!! They will take bluing off on contact.

    If you read into the literature, it says that it will remove bluing and browning. That is a concern, but it could be a major benefit also, if re-bluing is necessary or intended.

    I've had several guns re-blued, and the process of prep took off the sharp edges, designs and lettering. This may be a viable and cost effective alternative?

    A product that works for removing rust from guns is Frontier 45. Smear a quality oil such as Lucas gun oil over the rusted area and rub with Frontier 45. This product works.

    Read the contents very carefully before using! Some of these rust removal products contain phosphoric acid, which will indeed remove the rust and blueing. It will also etch the metal surface, requiring repolishing of the metal.
