You Can Get Rid of Gun Rust with a Copper Penny, Here’s How

remove gun rust with a copper penny

Want to learn an old school trick for getting rust off your firearms?

Well, dig in your pocket for an old penny and you’re almost there. Learn how to remove gun rust with a copper penny and some elbow grease.

Well, Youtuber mixup98 got a great deal on a sweet little Rossi double-barrel shotgun. There is one problem, though; the barrels are covered with surface rust.

Have no fear. Why not fish around in your loose change and pick out an all copper pre-1982 U.S. penny. Grab some oil and sit down for some light rubbing with the softer than steel copper penny. In a jiffy the rust will be history.

Thank you mixup98 for bringing this great gunsmithing trick out to the public.
