I have a handgun that unfortunately sat in a holster for a whole week during deer season after seeing some snow. Needless to say, the snow melted and pooled on the cylinder and at the end of the barrel and formed rust spots. Now my revolver has some really bad looking spots where I carefully steel wooled and tried to cover with 44-40 bluing.
What options do I have to take care of the problem? I've thought about taking to a gunsmith to have the gun refinished, but am afraid to find out the cost! I've been careful since, and rust has not reformed but I don't like how it looks. Any ideas? Does anybody know how much it would cost to have it refinished?
