Art, what did you use for the "instant result" on your Ruger? Was the resulting grey a pleasant appearing grey? Thanks.

The Birchwood-Casey remover sure does work slick. Took a few minutes to remove the blue from a Parker action and it left that nice gray patina with some CC showing.

Evaporust is a liquid soak for removing rust. Sold in car parts stores. Gently converts oxide without eating into the steel the way white vinegar does. Vinegar will eat away sharp edges on screw treads and engraving. What’s in it is proprietary. I suspect citric acid. Caution, case coloring will be removed. The end result is a dull medium grey. But it will make any rust blue, cold blue or hot blue convert to a dull medium grey without any abrasives

Evaporust used to be sold at harbor freight too. It does work well. And it is supposed to be completely harmless health wise, non-toxic. I have found though that it works best when something is soaked in it as it takes time to work. Vs some other, previously mentioned, products are faster acting.
