    need help

    I bought a taurus m85 .38 special off a guy I know. I'm not a taurus fan but for the price I wasn't going to pass it up. Love the feel and everything. Brought it to work with me to show a guy who is always talking to me about guns. Hewas looking at it and says you need to get the rust out of the barrel. Apparently during my intial inspection I missed it. Just right past the muzzle. Not bad. What is the best way to remove it?

    Rust on a gun (except for the outside of an old single shot 12 gauge is something I have never experienced before and any advice would be appreciated.

    First use a bronze brush and a little oil.
    Then use a tight patch and a little oil.

    If that doesn't work, try using JB Bore Paste.

    I have a Charter Arms Bulldog .44 spl. Love the little thing (Magnaported with Pachmeyer grips), but I nicknamed it Neil (Young) because on this gun Rust Never Sleeps! It is definitely an example of getting what you pay for, and I suspect you have the same deal. Good news is you don't have rust working on the bluing like I do. I confess to sloppy maintenance being a goodly part of the problem, I just never had a gun so rust prone before. I love the .44spl., and think S@W should bring back the Stainless 696, and throw in the 3913 to boot!
    Good luck and let us know how it shoots and be sure to clean that sucker thoroughly whence returning home.
    Regards, Eli
