Again, we are talking "new" Expresses !!!

The Express' finish is garbage. It is doubtful that you have gotten off all the rust since it rusted the first time so it pops back up quickly.
Amen to that and I always encourage folks to find out for themselves and make the final measure. ...

Take a brand new express, out of the box and wipe the barrel and reciever with an oily rag. Look at your rag and see what you have, especially off the barrel. You can repeat this process over and over, with the same results. I contacted the factory and they said it was a protective oil coating. The color was a dark rusty brown. ....
The problem is the courseness in the finish that allows for rust to form, in the deep grooves. ...

Be Safe !!!
'Fundamental truths' are easy to recognize because they are verified daily through simple observation and thus, require no testing.
