I neglected my M4 and got rust on the smith vortex flash suppressor and the metal portion of the telescopic buttstock. The stuff worked great in removing rust. However, I got a little on my barrel. What are my options?

1) Cheap
2) Not so cheap options

What should I do to protect the metal of my flash suppressor after removing the rust? Thanks[

You should have used steel wool and perhaps a wire brush at most. You put phosphoric acid on your weapon. All blue and rust remover is is re-branded naval jelly.

CLP will keep it from rusting as will not storing it in a gun case and not storing it in the damper parts of the house. Upper levels are better.

Is there a good reason why I am not getting any input. I truly am surprised. I have always gotten some great responses but failed in this respect. I put the same thread in maintenance and got nothing. Is there a reason? Please help with what I should do. thanks in advance. ralph

I guess you could send the upper off to somebody like Bigbore ( I think he has prices for refinishing on his website ) ADCO

Ask him in the Industry forum:
