    Hello,



    The gun has a parkerized finish. Kind of a rough finish. I've got small rust spot about 1/8" in diameter. The rest of the finish is fine except for that one spot.

    The only thing I've tried so far is a toothbrush and CLP.

    Any suggestions as to how else I might want to deal with this?

    Thanks,
    Don.

    Depending on the guns overall condition it may be best to re-Park the whole gun. But it would be possible to just mask off the offending spot of rust and blast or otherwise "sand" it off. And then throw the entire gun into the Park bath. It would Park the spot and possibly add a little more to the rest of the gun. In effect blending it all together.
