My Ruger Mark 1 got wet.

My wife took her CCL class today. During the shooting portion it was pouring down rain and there was no cover. She had to leave the bolt locked open in the rain, leave the gun on the table, step back while others shot, etc.

All my stuff got soaked. Leather range bag. Zippered pistol case. And the gun.

I took the gun apart. I dried everything off, then soaked the bolt mechanism, trigger assembly, magazine, etc, with WD 40.

I let the WD 40 drain off, wiped it down again, and put it back together.

Is that sufficient to prevent rust?
