    I have a 1911 that is Blued, but has polished white sides on the slide, as in "NO finish"..................I built this pistol in 1983, and it sits in a safe in my cellar...........

    Yeah, I applied some oil to it, (As in wipe it on, wipe it off) but it's lucky if it's gotten attention more than once a year, over the last 15-20 years..........

    I've never have any hint of rust on it, or other firearms ............

    I treat them all the same way, with Mystery Oil.........

    You might consider wiping Rain-X on the metal of the gun. Allow it to react for a few minutes and wipe it back off. That material will form a chemical bond with the metal and will help it to repel water and resist moisture pick-up. 3M used to make and sell an aerosol version of a similar water-proofing called ScotchGard. NASA used such a waterproofing to treat the ceramic tiles on the Space Shuttles.

    Interesting, and thank you for the suggestion and info...........

    But, .....After 35 years with no issues, I don't think I want, or need to change my storage conditions.............

    Rain-X is great stuff though,..........I use it on the glass in my Jeep and Corvette, also use Rain-X washer fluid............

    One time, I drove from CT to Maine in a torrential rain storm in my Jeep, and never needed to use my wipers.

    Rain-X is well worth the extra money as a washer fluid.

    Thanks,

    Tom
