Few things in life are more infuriating than realizing that a firearm you spent a fortune on is beginning to rust. What makes it so painful, is that you know it’s probably your fault. You can spend many hours over the course of many years keeping your firearms in immaculate condition. You can thoroughly clean them after every use. But if you slip up once after a hunting trip or a long day at the range, there’s a good chance that you’ll see some rust emerge the next time you use your firearm.
But fortunately, not all is lost. Don’t start pulling your hair out if you see a little surface rust on your firearm because as this video shows, it’s pretty easy to clean up.
And if you’re really worried about scratching up your gun while cleaning out rust, it turns out that an old copper penny can work wonders on an aging firearm.
But obviously, it’s best to keep rust from showing up in the first place. If you’re a new firearm owner, here are the basics that you need to know.
