    Beretta Shotgun Finish Sucks

    Well of 2 guns ive ever had any problems with the xd and now the Beretta


    Last time up north i went bird hunting we didnt hunt much rained hard so we went out in the mist one day and did a little ..

    I have hunted in lot worse with 870 wingmaster and no rust problems


    So after the hunting i took shotgun in cabin wiped it down with rag then heavyly with silicon clotch heated gun up by fire anther wipe with silicon clotch then a heavy oiling..


    Got home another heavy oiling fast foward week and a half .. toady doing some stuff in gun safe pull out beretta and bam rust surface but still i o have a goldenrod in the safe check other guns nope nothing as i thought

    The finish is kind of a parkarized finish just not super heavy..


    Anyideals on this one or am i gonna have to buff it and oil it and them wax it everytime i plan to use it ?


    Any other ideas?


    the buff grease heat slide and let grease soak in then oil and wax fixed the xd's problem..


    What do you guys think?

    There's all sorts of outfits willing and able to aftermarket coat just about anything. I like my XDs enough I'd pay for such a service if it became a problem. How much you like that shotgun?

    My browning shotgun really rusts up fast too. I keep lots of Break free on the metal parts and wipe it down atleast once during a weekend to keep the rust off during duck season.

    Bud - does sound like a poor finish re corrosion.

    Try perhaps some ''Boeshield" - spray on stuff that has an effect like car wax - strikes me as well useful for excursions into damp, wet, humid etc.

    My 870 tho I must admit seems very tolerant. Wonder if this is typical of Beretta shotties.

    I wonder if some inquiries on that could yield info. Just to determine what the finish is meant to be.

    My 870 is not blued in fact - it's the 870 Magnum, short barrel and has a sorta matt finish - looks almost Park'ed. But it does not rust easily thus far.

    Your post shoot applications should have avoided what you saw later - as long as fully dry. Only thing I think sometimes is - oiling or even Si cloth could just sometimes trap moisture under the film. Still not good tho.

    yeah i thought about the trapping mostiuse but i always warm guns up by fire place before i oil well i think the silicone cloth should basically remove the moisture anyways

    Also my stuff is 50/50 blued stainless no other firearm do i have problems with but xd none of my blued rifles have the problem and they have been in a lot of rain and snow many many time with only a heat up and wipe down for the night
