I have been doing gunsmithing now for 46 years.

In my experience, the best things there are for removing really heavy rust are files, metal cutting sand paper and stones.

On some guns it may be realistic to take off about 2/3 or ¾ of the pitting, sand blast the surface and refinish to a dull matt finish. It’s false economy to restore a gun that is not highly collectable to a point you spend as much money (or too many hours) as it would take you to buy a new one.
