    Kel-tec rust

    MY kel-tec p3at is starting to show some rust on the top of the slide. I bought it new last month and have 100 rds through it. What can I do about the rust?

    Try a bit of Break Free CLP on an old rag and rub it off. In the future I'd get in the practice of wiping down your gun with a silicone cloth each day when you are putting it away. That will keep the rust from forming.

    I am thinking you sweat - a lot! I exude sweat as an atmosphere as well as the real wet stuff! Why I carry stainless.

    If the rust is over a wide area - use some Scotchbright with warm soapy water and get back to normal finish and dry off. Or for local stuff - rub gently with a penny.

    Once rust dispersed .. wipe with a cloth that is generously impregnated with CLP - or use ''Boeshield". Otherwise - apply car wax and buff gently.

    This treatment if applied often enough should prevent more rusting.

    I have never carried this gun. I bought it, cleaned it, took it to the range put 50 rds through it. Went home, cleaned it, put it away. Went back to range at a later date and out another 50 rds through it, took it home, cleaned it. Put it back into the bag it came in and put it away. It's been in the bag for about 3 weeks. I did wipe it down with a silicone cloth before putting it away. I just happened to pull it out today and noticed some rust.

    Ahhh - well I guess maybe you siliconed over some slight moisture maybe. If moisture trapped I think rust might still occur.

    Being in bag may not be best place - bit like sometimes keeping a gun in holster for storage - actually can encourage corrosion. If storing much then try and add a baggie of Silicagel - dessicant. But also make sure it is dry as dry before applying protectant.

    I doubt the KT finish is all that good at protecting against rust.

    Post DITTO on the Wax

    This is a FANTASTIC Product for Knives And Firearms and gun/rifle stocks.
    It's always for sale on Ebay. Buy the smaller size.
    A little goes a long way.
    It's probably one of the finest ph neutral protective waxes out there.
    No, it will not make your gun slippery.



    Renaissance Wax was originally developed in association with the British Museum for restoration and protection of art treasures, and is a superb micro-crystalline polish ideal for use in protecting fine cutlery and antique swords and firearms.
    Renaissance Wax is an all-time favorite coating for reducing friction, preventing rust and corrosion, and putting an easily reversible durable protective coating on any surface that needs it.
    Though it seems fabulously expensive, Renaissance Wax lasts so long and works so well that even the most frugal individual will find it a genuine value. It is an excellent protective agent for any wood or metal surface, leaving an extremely hard, thin coating of astonishing durability with excellent resistance to water, alcohol and fingerprints.

    Eezox is supposed to be some of the best anti-rust stuff, CLP tested good, but not as good. I use both!

    During good scrubdowns with CLP, I will dry off the gun good, then hose it over with Eezox, then use the good stuff to oil/grease the the moving parts (Gunbutter, Tetra grease, Mobil 1, etc.)
