Tried to scrub it off with some cleaner/degreaser (slip 2000) and a nylon brush, but it didn't really do much. What do you guys reccomend I do?

Get yourself some Blue Wonder or MPro 7, 000 & 0000 steel wool, and a bronze bristle toothbrush. That will get it off.

With small rust spots, I think a rag and CLP and elbo-grease are the way to go. It will take a minute, but you won't remove anything but rust.

You need something to get down into the pores of the metal and the park. A nylon brush can do this without removing anything but the rust.

I had a small spot of stubborn rust spot on my carbines barrel. Wipe downs with CLP and a rag didn’t cut it. The rust kept resurfacing. It took a bronze bristle GI tooth brush to get down into the surface of the metal to lift the corrosion from the pores.


Looks like I'm gonna need a BRONZE brush, because the Mil-Comm cleaner/degreaser and nylon GI brush didn't completely take off the rust. It made it less noticeable, but the spots are still there.
