Love that Kroil. Put it on heavy and leave it over night. Rub it down and then repeat. And it is great to use with 0000 steel wool. Then it will be decision time about how much further to go.

Thanks for the help guys. I don't want to spend a bunch of money, just want it to look good. This was built in Canada.

LAKEFIELD MARK I made in Canada Imported by Lakefield arms usa, Inc. Fairfax, Va.
shoots short, long and long rifle. Looks like a Marlin 22 bolt gun. Single shot. I think this will be a rainy day project.

That would bother me more than the rust...

If you don't mind removing the bluing then the best way to go is using Naval Jelly. It's powerful stuff and you'll want to wear hand protection, but all you do is wipe it on then wipe it off after a time. It WILL remove all the bluing and leaves bare metal.

LakeField guns are still being made but the factory was bought by Savage in 1994. So your gun would have to be older than 1994 or so if it has the LakeField Arms name on it. Be patient with this link, as it seems to have a time delay built into it...

All Savage rimfires sold today are made in this same factory, and your gun probably looks pretty much like this one?

The AccuTrigger is a feature that Savage has added more recently. These are inexpensive, but very good guns.

One other thing to try to remove the rust, if the less aggressive methods above do not work, is automotive rust remover. It typically is a gel like compound which contains phosphoric acid (the same acid you find in Coke). Plumbing places sell phosphoric acid as well. I would apply it with the really fine steel wool, and not let it stay on too long. It has a preference to dissolve rust, but will attack sound metal if left too long. You want to quickly follow that with oil so it does not rust again. At this point you are likely into having to reblue.

If you don't have a manual for it, this current one from Savage is likely very close.

WD-40 and steel wool is your best advise above...but I personally would just have the gun reblued...
