New Remington 11-87 rust

I just bought an 1187 sportsman. Took it out for ducks this weekend. In the blind I noticed some surface rust developing on the receiver and barrel. I completely disassembled it and found the stock support rod showing additional signs.

Any thoughts? I was able to clean it up but found some minor discoloration remaining.

This is a working gun so I'm not expecting it to be pristine.... Bur rust in the first 4 hours of us? Wtf?

The surface texture on the 1187 is done by abrasive blasting which leaves the pores of the metal open to corrosion, unlike polishing which closes them.

Water has a place to grab hold. Bluing in its own right has no corrosion protection qualities. That combination is a formula for rust.

Fine steel wool soaked with oil will clean up light surface rust.

Then keep the surfaces (inside and outside) covered with a light coat of light oil. I use an oily rag to wipe down every gun (even the parkerized and stainless guns) before I put them away after cleaning. Every so often (may be a few years for some guns that I don't shoot) I pull them out of their storage location and wipe them down before putting them back.

I've never had a rusting issue on my parkerized or blued guns. I did have a weird rusting thing on my SS Colt 1911A1 one time. Bought it, broght it home, disassembled it, cleaned it, lubed it, wiped it down and put it away. A few days later the whole outside of the gun had a faint orange tint to it. I was "mortified". And really PO'd. I took some 0000 steel wool and 3n1 oil and went over the outside of it and haven't seen any rust/corrosion since. I don't have a clue why it rusted that first time after I had wiped it down.

Will you get some oil on your hands/clothes/gloves off of it? Yeah, but it'll be less likely to rust.

We've hunted in many states in all kinds of weather (dad was in the Air Force for 23 years). We come in from outside, set the shotgun/rifle down (or stand it up in the corner) and let it come up to room temperature. Leave the gun case open to dry out if you were out in the rain/snow. Once the gun is warmed up we clean it, oil it, wipe it down and do not put it back in the case till the case is thoroughly dried inside/out. No rust on our Ithaca M37's ever.

good folow up. Stainless used in guns is not true stainless as we assume. It is more stain resistant.

The composition of the material is a trade off, for durability and strenth you loose corrosion resistance. Barrels have a higher nickle content and less corosion problems, however they wear quicker.

Look how quick a stainless knife gets dull over a carbon blade.

that is a personal judgement,

if you think the expense is justified then go for it, the product works.

i parkerize everything i own, but, i do my own work.
