  1. General Firearms
    Ok everyone here is the story. My Remington 700 which is known to always have problems with surface rust on the craptacular remington finish again had some on it when I pulled it out yesterday to do a trigger swap. Well I removed the stock and old trigger group and cleaned the gun as best I...
  2. Off-Topic
    Bought a new truck truck tonight and was wondering what everyones using (if anything) for rust proofing. They tried selling my one of those electronic things but for $800 bucks I wasn't sure. Was thinking maybe Ziebart? what are your guys opinion??
  3. Ammunition and Reloading
    I've got a pile of about 1200 9mm rounds I made up a few months back when I opened the boxes up I'm seeing some like rust on the brass cases. Any ideas what's going on? I store reloads in old factory boxes in trays. Could this be from touching the cases during the loading process without gloves...
  4. Ammunition and Reloading
    Should I be worried about this? The ammo is 7.62x39mm Tulammo. Some rounds look worse than this, but not by that much. The bullet itself looks fine though. I just don't want to hurt my new rifle!

  6. Shotguns
    In the eternal discussion of 500 vs 870 one recurring theme I'm seeing a lot is that the current 870 Express shotguns are VERY susceptible rust, even if properly maintained, including simply coming in from the cold or looking at them wrong. I see this in a lot of searches. Has anybody here had...

  10. Handguns
    I have tried a number of cloths for cleaning my revolver cylinder and gas ring and forcing cone and any place that gets carbon and possible leading. The Hoppes did not work, the Birchwood Casey was OK and the best ones so far are the Tipton cloths. The Tipton worked like magic. The end of...

    Hey all, I just picked up a new Kahr PM9 on Wednesday and took it out and shot it for the first time yesterday. When I got done cleaning it I was looking it over and noticed a fair amount of faint reddish/brownish spots. Just curious to know if anyone has seen anything like this before on...
  12. Ammunition and Reloading
    Ugh, haven't used my Lee Pro 1000 in like 2 months, and now I have found some surface rust on a couple of parts. Thinking that I may have to move this from the basement to somewhere else. (There's even a de-humidifier running down there!) I know it needs to be oiled, bu damn, 2 months? It's not...
  13. Off-Topic
    I picked up a used Ralli-Tek skid plate from a guy for my car the other day. I think it was installed on the guy's car for 2 years with Rochester winters so the mounting bolts were rusty, as expected. I put the bolts in a jar covered with the stuff overnight. I think it was about 10 hours...
