you could try electrolysis I have been reading about it. it seems to work there are some youtube videos about it to. what I have seen is it removes the rust and leaves the finish untouched. I am thinking of trying it. has anyone on here tried it?

24th series Kokura. It may or may not have a chrome bore. It should be shootable. Check to verify matching numbers. Clean the bore to get a good assessment of the bore condition. Leave the outside alone. You can wipe it down with some oil. Don't be aggressive.

Wise words. The quickest way to reduce value is in trying to "enhance it".
Leave the electrolysis and magic "solutions" to rusty boat anchors.

Jeep: I have done electrolysis with Civil War artifacts and it does an excellent job removing rust, and it is very simple to do using a car battery charger.

However, in the OP's case, he might be better off using some 0000 fine steel wool and gun oil and going that route instead.

The set up is really simple, although the electrical attachment can vary depending on what the object is and its shape. Take a socket bayonet for example, you can use just the battery clamps off the charger for this. Its been 9 months ago that I did this, but if I'm remembering correctly you use the positive clamp on the bayonet, and then you clamp the negative clamp onto a clean piece of steel that must be submerged in water with some dish washer detergent (powder type soap) mixed in for electrical flow. When you turn on the charger the positive cable is sending current into the bayonet loosening the rust. The rust then is drawn by the negative clamp to the steel rod where it builds up around the steel rod. You cannot let either object touch each other and both must be separated apart by 4 or more inches apart.


How long it takes time wise can vary depending on the object, but probably several hours. It does work real well and it will remove all the rust. Though you must wash it afterwards to remove the dish washing soap and I would use a hair dryer to remove the water, and then either seal the relic with some clear coat, or rub gun oil on it.

I am going to do electrolysis with my panzerschreck rocket this coming summer.

+1 on kroil

Or pb blaster. Let it soak very well then gently scrub off the rust. If you can get your hands on a frontier 45 scrub sponge I have had great success with those instead of 0000 wool. I use the electrolysis method as well and it works very well but you have to keep an eye on it as it will eventually remove blue. Kroil and wool or pb blaster are the safest ways to go..good luck!
