Re: Stevens 15-A
Not much can be done with that.
But if it has some surface rust along with the pitting you can do something.
Many ways used buy many people...I use a penny and some thin oil. It must be real copper pennies, not those made after 80 something.
Rub some oil or even Hoppies No 9 on the metal, small section at a time. Now lay the penny flat and rub it back and forth stopping to wipe it with a rag and add more oil or whatever you are using. The penny won't harm the bluing if there is any left either. Go over it all and wipe it down with a good gun oil preservative (I like Weapon Shield best).
Flip the penny over or use another one once the edge wears some for quicker results.
