i have a 870 and its new bought in march. im having problems with surface rust. i clean and oil it but it still happens. im wondering if i have a problem from factory, when u machine steel and it rust in production and dont clean or treat it, i wonder if they just sprayed over it??? it hasnt been wet and shot 2 or 3 times. do u think i need to get in refinished. i like the shotgun but i have never had a problem like this. i have had and do have other firearms and they dont have a problem. im ruger 10 22 is sitting longer in the closet then anything and no rust. the finish is that black textured type. i like it, not metal is showing that i can see but yikes!!! everytime i take it out there is rust any suggestions. thx robert :smiley-funny-post-sign:

Use a very stiff nylon brush(tooth brush) with a lot of oil. Brush the oil fairly hard into the rusty areas. The rust should dissapear, several attempts may be needed. On smooth surfaces, "0000" steel wool can be used with oil(not too hard).

do you wipe it down everytime after you touch it? I have to keep mine oiled due to being so close to the coast.

Good Camo paint job.
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.

Just keep oiling it and it will stop doing that after a while. My 870 express, and my brothers as well, would rust very easily for the first year or two that we had them. A day or so after wiping them down with oil it would look like we had put them away dry. Eventually the metals porous surface sucked up enough oil that they both quit doing that. I painted mine last year but not because it was rust prone, I just wanted a camo shotgun.
My guns are mine, they aren't for sale, and I only give guns to people that I really like. So I guess the government is **** out of luck.

It like a CLP, but better. They have a web site. The more you use it the easier it is to clean you guns. It lubes and cleans at the same time, and stays in place. It's the greatest stuff i ever used!

Hey Robert, what the guys posted above is good info for spot rust and general "leave your gun in the safe for a couple weeks" practice. I'm not sure what kind of rust issues you're having (I can't see a pic if you posted one), but I've seen first hand what a bad metallurgy job can do to the 870. My best friend bought an 870 (reluctantly, he's a Benelli guy) and the thing went out on one outing in the sunshine, came home and it went into the safe with the rest of his guns. My 870 and another friends 870 were out at the SAME outing, and the first 870 turned BRIGHT ORANGE. The ENTIRE gun.I've seen a number of these cases come up across the forums I'm on since then. Apparently Remington knows about it, and it's rare but it's their deal and they are fixing them under warranty (sending out new guns). Just wanted to bring that to your attention.

Sounds to me like you have an excess of corrosive salts in your skin. I keep my guns in a safe with a heating rod to drive out the humidity but I always wipe them down before putting them away. What you don't want to do is spray oil directly on the metal as the excess will seep into the wood, if you have a wood stock, and soften it.

If it's under warranty (the shop can tell you) you won't pay anything. When I drop off a gun at the shop I write my info on a card, take a receipt matching the number. They call me when it's done, if it's warrantied, then it's free, if it's not, they tell me the costs before they do the work.
