GUN Rust...damn

    I have a Marlin 30-30 that I let me uncle borrow a while back and I just got it back a few months ago. He had it over a year. Apparently my cousin got ahold of it and it was poorly taken care of. I spent an hour cleaning caked on Coke splatter and dust from it not being in the case.

    Please, no lectures on lending guns...I learned my lesson.


    Anyway, after getting the shit cleaned off I noticed there are some small "pin pricks" of rust on the left side of the reciever. How the hell can I repair this?? Guy at my local said i can "knock down" the pits with some #0000 steel wool and then just keep it oiled to prevent further damage.

    Any other ideas??

    use sandpaper, sandblaster, steel wool.... whatever you need to do to get the rust out. then use the birchwood casey touch-up liquid blue. Works very very well.

    Try the oil and steel wool before you get too crazy, you'll be surprised what it can do.

    Ditto. I had some rust on my Kimber. Steel wool and oil got it right off.

    marlin 30-30 is likely lever-action. many of those types of rifles have lots of brass bits on em. Depending on the metal/finish you would treat it differently.

    I could write an intelligent reply to these posts but it's easier to call you both stupid.

    i just searched lever-action brass. my point is that he said he had a 30-30. I know that most 30-30's are lever-action, and that many use brass. What is the problem with my asking him to clarify?

    Of all the things to jump on me for, that's retarded. It also makes me think you're retarded for not understanding.

    damn people. He asked a legitimate question. Some of the Marlin lever action rifles are brass coated. Mine is a standard Wally World Marlin 30-30 with blued steel.

    I'm 99% sure Marlin doesn't make any brass receiver rifles, and besides, brass doesn't rust. BOOM, HEAD SHOT TO THIS THREAD.
