Might this be a candidate for an electrolysis bath?

This should absolutely be set into a electrolysis bath. Why you arent scouring eBay for a used battery charger that isn't automatically controlled right now is beyond me.

If you can CAREFULLY remove the grips, this one is a candidate for my favorite anti-rust soaking mixture, PB Blaster and automatic transmission fluid. I put an entire Luger inside a plastic bag with this mixture for about six months, and most of the rust wiped off with a rag. A brass brush took the stubborn oxidation away.

Never use an abrasive, as sanding or stripping of the original blue can diminish a gun's value to the Nth degree.



This is why
