I did a search using various keywords (slip2000, rust, etc), so if there is a thread that already addresses this I apologize. I recently went to shop that specializes in cerakoting, laser engraving and other services since I was thinking about potentially get long guns cerakoted. I had also noticed there was a little spot of rust on one of them on the receiver, which was odd to me because generally I never have an issue with that.
Since I've never really ran into having rust on my of guns I wasn't sure to use fine steel wool or whatever. While I was there he took some WeaponShield on a rag that just wiped it off. So it apparently was a light case of rust or from surface transfer. My question is would Slip2000 have easily done the trick and would applying it serve as a decent rust protection agent? For over a decade I've only been using Slip2000 as a lubricant and never for cleaning. Generally I use Slip Carbon Killer and Slip Degreaser when I clean.
WeaponShield sells for $26 (4oz bottle) on Amazon. I have loads of Slip2000 already, so if that would work as a rust preventative I'd like to stick with that.
