    My 2-3 yr old 795 started rusting badly arount the barrel end. I finally took it down to bare steel and used oxypho- blue from browells. seemes to be better. Anybody have this problem?

    I've picked up some used ones that had bad rust, but most cleaned up with brass wool and oil. One was badly pitted and I did the same as you, cold blue. Not thrilled with it, but ok for my first attempt.
