    So i took my other sks apart to get the chosmoline off it. i dunked everything metal into a tub of kerosene and put it outside to avoid the smell indoors. Problem is it rained over night, and i think some of the water got in because when i took the parts out the chosmoline was off but now there were rust spots on most of the parts.

    What should i use to get the rust off ? did i mess up the rifle should i scrap the whole thing now or what ?

    Just use steel wool and a diesel or gas liquid. Get a gun cleaning kit, and use the gun oil in there. Thats great for keeping rust off, and will help keep the gun clean longer after firing. Well somewhat.

    Yeah, the only real danger with rust on a gun is when it's left that way for a while and a significant amount has oxidized. A little rust overnight is no big deal.

    Ive seen some really rusted out guns before be polished up and look good as new. Just make sure to use a gun cleaning kit, they really are nice, and if you care about your gun, use it after every session.

    00 steel wool, nothing more, nothing less is required. It'll come off reall easy. if you're going to reblue, you need to do that anyhow.
  6. Try Naval Jelly. The slide in my carb was rusty, and that fixed it, it works perfect now.

    Do you have a cleaning kit? You wouldn't want to use steel wool on the inside of the barrel anyway, but a cleaning rod w/ gun solvent would do the trick.
