Reblueing

Thread starter #1
I have a 870 that has a good bit of rust on it and I am wondering if it would benefit me to just get the kit and reblue the whole gun or what any suggestions

he left something out...when he says old penny he means one prior to 1982...that is the last year they were all copper I think...don't use the newer blended material pennies

Put down an old towel and spray down the metal parts of the gun generously with breakfree CLP. Let it soak for 15-20 minutes, then scrub it with a copper bristled brush and wipe it clean. Repeat until the rust is gone.

Yeah the videos I was watching stated that after 1982 is copper plated zinc it's not copper but I still would have never knew that though
