Hey guys,I was visiting with my parents over the holidays and my dad gave me the first rifle I ever fired. It's a Marlin Model 60 and it was primarily used to shoot gofers on my grandparent?s farm, in North Dakota, during summer vacation(s). Back in those days you could walk out the front door, drive straight down Main Street on your three-wheeler with the rifle strapped across the front. Boy, times have changed.From what we figured, I last used the rifle 25-30 years ago! It has some minor rust on the barrel and the action is filthy. I don?t think we ever cleaned the gun. Regardless, I received a very cool x-mas gift if you ask me.btw...it's soaking in CLP now :)Any advise on how I may be able to remove the rust?Mark
Bullets are pretty worthless. All they do is hang around waiting to get loaded.

Thats not just any clown. That's Cranky the Clown lava lamp! Its evil trust me and thats why Cranky is on my bench.Posted ImageOk back to the rifle. What if I just leave it alone and put it my safe? Will the pitting get worse and ruin the rifle or will it remain as is?

You call that Rust :) Please, I have a Model 25 that puts that to shame :) Light steel wool with Hot water, dry Immediatly with air compresser if you have one.Then a couple coats of cold blue followed by a coat of oil and your good to go. I wouldn't think twice about it.Nice little gun, Congrates B)

Do not paint it ! :)
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.

I hope you guys have Golden Rods or desiccant packs in your safes. Especially with all of this really damp weather we've been having. :)

Damp Rid is a desiccant. :D It absorbs moisture and you can regenerate Damp Rid by putting it in a pan and then into the oven for one hour at 400 degrees Fahrenheit and it will be as good as new.
