Under the wood, the trigger guard but mostly the outside of the ammo box has a some bright orange rust, I took a scotchbrite, penetrating oil, and finished it with CLP.

I tried thick cotton t-shit scrap, penetrating oil, and CLP on the barrel, but there are some small patches that have clearly penetrated the bluing. Along with the million pinhole sized. Smoothed out and tamed the rust a little, until I can grab some 0000 steel or copper wool.

That's about all you can do.... next step cold blue in spots but the gun probably isn't worth a ton, shoot it and enjoy.
