How to Get Rid of Gun Rust with a Copper Penny

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.
