    Everytime I go to my gunsafe most of my guns are always dirty. Even though I clean them after the range (till the patches come out spotless), the guns always seem to have some brown 'dirt' on them. I also have a dehumidfier in the room as well as a desicant can in the safe so I don't think it could be the moisture getting to them. The only ones that seem to be getting dirty are my Mosin, XR-100, and Savage .22lr. These finishes aren't the shiny blueing but more of a matte color.

    Will putting them in gun socks help?

    Thanks,

    War Eagle

    yes, i would also get some vci vapor discs, and put inside the safe, it also sounds like you may be getting dust in there?

    Isn't the brown 'dirt' usually old grease?

    Hmm. It actually may be; becuase once I first bought the rifle it was very 'dirty' from Sportsmans and I am pretty sure it wasn't rust...

    It could be old grease then.
