    Clean with bore cleaning solvent on a patch or rag.
    Oil with gun oil on a patch or rag.

    The Parkerizing needs to soak up oil to provide rust protection.

    There is no special drill. Depending on what you apply oil to the parkerized surface with, you may see a little lint.

    Use grease instead of oil, oil will evaporate way too readily when that barrel heats up, or it simply sits too long. Grease is pretty much there for the duration.

    Clean it with regular bore solvent. If you have a little patch of rust put some kroil on it and let it soak for a few hours. take an old toothbrush and see if that gets it off. After you've cleaned it, soak, I mean soak, that sucker with Rem oil and let it sit overnight. Soak it down again the next day and let that sit overnight. Wipe off excess and reassemble.

    Very interesting thread. I'd be interested to know if the recommended methods should be altered if the gun is stored in a warm area? I live in the 3rd floor of a house that gets rather toasty.

    Not unless you store it next to the shower. ;)

    Think about it...people don't do special things for blued carbon steel. The parkerized surface is even more resistant to corrosion and retains oil/etc. (of any kind) better on the surface due to the "toothy" surface. If you treat it like a blued gun, you will be fine under normal condx. If you live/hunt/store it/etc. somewhere where a blued gun would need more care, just do the same.

    Parkerizing will actually rust more severely than polished blue if it's completely devoid of lube, it'll take on moisture and hand oils and hold them right against the underlying steel for some serious corrosion.
