    So I got this Mav 88 and its been setting in the corner collecting dust. I have only handled it a few times in the last few months, well when i pulled it out on inspection the blueing on the mag tube was rusty. So whats a guy to do? Camo paint job

    Looks good.

    I personally restored my last shotgun with some solvent and 0000 steel wool then oiled the whole thing down. Haven't had a speck of rust since and it looks original.

    You sniffing too much paint.
