my title sums it up. Picked up a very early production SP1 (late 60s), and the outside on the barrel has a fine layer of rust and rust inside the holes of the flashider. Want to know if there is a solution that will help remove it and if it can be removed with out buffing off the parkerized finish.

CLP, bronze brush, and elbow grease...

thanks, I've done this with my C&Rs but it always removes the bluing

also, I have some 000 steel wool would that be better or worse?

A bronze brush should not hurt the finish on your AR.
Steel is a different story all together...

Sheath seems to work well for me.

thanks.

CLP (Beretta's version) with a wire brush worked well.
