I have acquired a 38 S&W 3rd gen break top lemon squeezer dates around 1897... It has a good cylinder and a good bore, it seems to function well, grip safety works, though I have not shot it yet, I am going to take it to a smith to examine it and pick up some 38S&W ammo.
My question is: How do I remove external rust? It has some cosmetic blemishes and pitting and some rust in the pitting... I have covered it in CLP and used a rust removing hoppes rag to clean some of it up. Is there anything else to remove the rust or smooth the blemishes?
Thanks, for the help!
