Rust is formed when metal is exposed to moisture and oxygen. It causes discoloration and can even cause damage to your firearm.


Use rust prevention products.

A lot of cleaning solutions available on the market are multi-purpose since they can also lubricate or protect. Choose cleaning solutions that contain chemicals for rust prevention.

Store your gun properly.

Protect your gun from the elements by keeping it in a moisture-free container, or even better, keep it in a gun safe.
