Any good suggestions for rust inhibitors? My "Salt Gun" has some rust and corrosion where the stock mates with the receiver, but barely encroaches onto blued exterior surfaces. I'd like to restock this gun, but think some sort of rust inhibitor should be applied. Any suggestions that are simple, relatively long-term other than bead blasting, welding and annealing, etc.?

Many thanks.

Along those lines = rust removal = 0000 steel wool. Nothing coarser and use some sort of oil even if it is 3 and one. Go easy on the pressure. For storage on my guns I use Rig Universal, it leaves an nice film inside and out. For my Red Label I use Rig Plus P on trunions. Ruger even ships a small blister of this product with new guns. Plus P is formulated for stainless steel. Bill

Cold blues will not inhibit rust, and some tests have shown that they can accelerate rust. Any bluing requires that a rust shield (e.g., RIG, etc.) be applied over it.

I haven't dealt with these salt woods, so I'm just wondering out load here. Is it possible to finish the interior surfaces of the stock with a polyurethane or some such so as to eliminate or reduce the salt-steel contact?

A sealer between the receiver and the wood would help, but not prevent more damage. Any type of varnish would do. RIG on the metal is about as good of a rust inhibitor as is available. Removing just a tiny bit of the wood that contacts the receiver and then glass bedding the stock might help. Or, it might not help but would not hurt anything.

Ballistol.

Nothing better!

Nothing safer for you skin, cuts, etc... No carcinogens like WD-40, Hoppes, etc...

Cleans, lubricates, water displacement, rust inhibitor, plus 100 other things.

Watch part of the infomercial. None other than Joyce DeWitt of Three's Company.
