Rusty barrel cleaning solutions


So, I just purchased my first military surplus rifle and discovered that the bore is full of rust. I was wondering what’s the best way to clean rust out of a barrel? Your opinions and advice are most appreciated.


I’d get other options but steel wool on a cleaning rod maybe.


maybe Vinegar?, haven’t tried it my self


Is it surface rust, light pitting/frosting or full blown dark?


It is brown and in the bore of the rifle.


This is what how the swabs turned out after I ran them through the barrel. Swan 1 is on top, swab 2 is on the bottom.
