I have an 870 express and i was caught in the rain with it deer hunting. When i got back to the house I dryed it off good then gave it a good oiling and put it back in the cabinet. Well now its getting small amouts of surface rust all over it. I tried using some steel wool on it and then reoiling but it keeps coming back. this gun does not have a smooth blued finish like a wingmaster. Its rough like a cast piece would be. I believe that thats biggest part of my problem, not being able to clean all of the small pits

Strange. Never have this kind of issue with home parked stuff.

Soak it in nice hot water with baking soda mixed in. Factory might not have neutralized the phosphoric acid before shipping it.

Can't see why it just suddenly showed up as an issue, though.

As for the OP I have no idea. It sounds peculiar.

Mine was a prolonged fuckup. That no weapon would have survived.
