Alright, I posted a few weeks ago about getting a shotgun from my dad. I bought some stuff to remove rust from blued finishes, and it got some off, but it won't get all of it off. Anyway to get something that will get some old, deep rust off of a blued barrel/reciever without ruining the finish?
Also, where are some good places to get some accessories for it (synthetic stock, magazine extension etc)??
Any help is appreciated.
Well, the bad news is that rust and blueing are the same. Basically, blueing is polished rust, so if you are trying to remove some deep rust in spots, you will remove some of the finish.
You may just want to check with a local gunsmith to see what re-blueing would run you. It's usually not that expensive, and a newly blued firearm can look sharp.
For accessorizing, try Brownells, but it helps to be able to get dealer pricing from them. Some others to try:
Cactus Tactical (I shoot with these guys and they use what they sell)
Arizona Gun Runners
If you need to get the gun refinished:
Cummings Custom Refinishing
3351 Asheville Hwy
Greeneville, TN 37743
Remington barrels (you must know the Remington part number):

D&R Sports Center

Stay away from Arizona Gun Runner. They have a hard time getting the orders right.
