Saw something disturbing when attempting to installing new grips.

They say a picture's worth a thousand words.
How do I get rid of it?

Use the 0000 steel wool and gun oil together?

Absolutely. Apply the oil and rub lightly or moderately with the steel wool. 3 in 1 oil works too. Should get rid of the surface rust. Hopefully it's not pitted. But the grips will hide that.

Better off using brass wool. Steel can leave very small parts back in the metal and rust.

Stainless? Scotch-Brite and Kroil or Hoppe's No.9.

Earlier posted suggestions will work ...but my favorite on that kind of rust is Iosso Bore Cleaner. Left overnight, the rust will wipe off with a coarse cloth; then oil and wipe off the excess.


P.S. I don't leave Iosso on bluing for long periods and clean it off more thoroughly.

I read that big45metalcleaner is not recommended for anodized aluminum. Is the the same material my frame's made of?

If your frame was made of aluminum it would not have red rust on it. Iron/steel creates red rust.

It's stainless, but there are several alloys of stainless, this is what is a magnetic alloy, (has more iron in it than some others) therefore it will rust.
