I have a brand new Remington Mountain SS used on ONE hunting trip. So I found a few very faint, very small (smaller than a pin head) spots of rust near the tip of my rifle barrel. You can tell they are surface only...not very deep at all. First of all...I dont get it...I wiped it down after hunting...it wasnt wet...and this was only 1 DAY of hunting followed by 1 DAY of sitting before I noticed the rust so it wasnt like it sat very long before I noticed even "IF" I had left it wet, which i did not. I mean I know these stainless guns can still rust, but dang I thought they were supposed to be better than blued guns at rust prevention. Ive left blued rifles wet for a few days maybe even a week in warmer weather than this and no rust or corrosion formed. RANT OVER haha.
I am wondering what you all think is the best way to remove it, with out dramatically changing the finish. The barrel has a very few scratches on it anyways so I am not REALLY concern about looks but you cant see these scratches from a few feet away and if i can keep the marks from this rust removal to be similar to that I will be very happy. The rifle gets used and is meant to get a little dinged up so again not TOO worried about buffing the rust out and creating some fine buffing marks into the finish if the outcome removes the tiny spots of rust
By the way...I missed a Buck this sunday at 15 YARDS LMAO...It was very windy and I was in a tree stand that was swaying back and forth. I was using my 4.5-14 power scope watching a field when the buck came out of nowhere behind me. since the buck was so close it was very hard trying to keep the buck in view of the scope with the swaying tree. Ultimately i am happy i missed as opposed to wounding the deer...lesson learned...dont sit in swaying tree stands lol.
