I heard of the 870s having a problem with rust because of the finish a few years back...anyone know if this is still a problem or not? Or is it primarily a lack of care for the the firearm?

I have one in the matte finish and it had a ton of rust when new but a good cleaning and lube took care of it. I think it was more of a left over residue from the blueing process than anything else. I have a number of 870's and the only one that had this was the express tactical with the matte finish.

I bought a brand new 870 tactical last month, got it home, wiped all the packing oil off it and put it in the safe. Has no issues what so ever
