Well had my 22 put up for a while and went to go get it other day and noticed rust on barrel, what can I do to remove it.

Gun oil on rag will remove surface rust. Gun oil on fine brass brush will remove pitted rust, but will leave pits. Nothing you can do about that. But make SURE it is brass brush. Anything else will remove bluing and scratch barrel. brass will not. It may leave brassy looking discolored spot that will wipe off with rag.

If you can still buy Flitz I've had good luck with it removing rust spots from gun barrels. Used it with 0000 steel wool and then buffed with a felt cloth from shoe shine kit.

As others have said, 0000 steel wool and oil. I've also used fine bronze wool and Kramer's restorer to clean some off of antique guns.

Had great luck with 3 in 1 oil and the light steel wool....with a little elbow grease....won't hurt surrounding areas though.
