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.
