Try oiling it first. If it is to deep to be removed with oil take a lead pencil and color the rust spots. Then take a sharp edge to scrape the rust away. You will then probably want to refinish the spots that you worked on.
Do not be afraid to use steel wool. Fine steel wool does not remove blueing, but will remove small freckling that occurs when rust starts to take a set. Try using 000 or 0000 steel wool with a few drops of oil, and unless your shotgun has already developed pitting, it will look good as new.
i agree with explorer but u might need to re-blue it
Ok, 99explorer, Thanks for the response! I will try it! Is there a way you know of that I could rust-proof it, though? By the way, this gun has no sentimental value to me. Thanks!
