View Full Version : Reminington Riders

I recently acquired a Remington & Sons Riders 1871 magazine pistol, .extra 32 short, I think. It appears to function well however there are patches of surface rust in the barrel. It doesn't look as if it is pitted but in a couple of the lands it a bit "darker" than surface rust. What is the best way to attempt to remove the rust. I just swabbed the bore with Break Free and remove a lot of the surface rust. Right now I have the Break Free "soaking" in the bore. Thanks for any insight on the rust and any other info on the pistol.

It sounds like you did the right think. Just use a bore cleaner and lots of patches. Actually shooting it should help clean up that barrel as well, then of course clean it when your done shooting. It doesn't look bad from the pictures, so just a good amount of cleaning should get it cleaned up really well.
