    I have a Guerini Maxum Trap Unsingle where the metal on the receiver tarnishes/oxidizes/rusts very quickly. I wipe it immediately after use and usually give it a quick spray of Ballistol.
    However it still goes off rather quickly.
    The web site says there is some kind of coating on the metal, but if there was something on it, it has long worn off. My Challenger does not have this problem.

    What do you folks use to polish the metal, and what do you use to keep it shiny?

    To be clear, I am talking about the metal on the receiver/sideplates, not the barrels or rib.

    Flitz, it'll keep it clean and put a protective coating on it. Follow instructions and you should not have anymore problems. Been using it for yrs. Roy

    Your gun comes with a lifetime warranty. The first step should be to call the factory and see what they want to do with it.

    The factory should take care of it..its just a clear coat of lacaquer over the metal...Flitz used with a dremel tool felt buffing wheel will clean it up but it will just keep tarnishing without the protective coating restored
