    i left my 11-87 in the case in my truck for about a week and apparently there was some moisture trapped in the case. :wtc:

    any tips? :x:

    My 870 has a constant light coat of rust. I've grown to just accept it as part of the finish :wtc:

    Nothing can save it. It's ruined. Send it to me for proper disposal please.

    I use Hoppes No 9, plus the steel wool, and finish it off with a silicone impregnated rag dipped in a touch of lube (RemOil) to do a final buff/polish.

    No biggie, surface rust comes off easily.

    light clp and a rag. just scrub til it comes off, then reapply a light coat of oil. my 870 gets surface rust if i touch it after oiling.

    using that bluing stuff works after an oil, too.

    I use CLP and a bronze brush. Works great.

    Bronze works, especially on pitting. I've seen it scratch blue jobs when people get a little sporty with it though. I usually don't pull it out unless I'm trying to clean up some stuff thats rusted down into the metal.
