    You might try a machinist 'eraser' and then keep it oiled real good. The spot will never disappear completely.

    If it's pitted about all you can do is steel wool it then re blue the spot as best you can. Unfortunately it will never be quite the same.

    -I have had fillet knives rust due to putting them into the sheath while the knife was still dirty(I would wash the knife later, but forgot about the sheath), so maybe the same happened with the gun and holster.
    -As far as removing the rust, try soaking a white cloth in some gun cleaning oil and really rub it. If any of the rust comes off you will see it on the cloth.

    Got a question for all you gun experts. My dad owns a 1960s era Ruger Single-Six .22 revolver that somehow developed a nasty spot of rust on the outside of the barrel. I don't know how it happened, because we keep it in the holster in a dry box where it's easy to get to quickly, in case we need it to dispatch some sort of vermin here on the farm, so it didn't get wet or anything. My best guess is it got a spot of blood on the barrel somehow, and it didn't get cleaned off for some reason. But my question is, what can we do to take the rust off, or at least keep it from rusting further, apart from keeping it well-oiled? The metal is lightly pitted, so I don't think it's going to just rub off with steel wool.

Welcome!
