+1 to what Barenjager has posted concerning the rust removal. If you are a little nervous about using that 0000 fine steel wool--try the copper choreboy pads. Those pads are less abraisive but will work getting that surface rust off using kroil that Barejagger spoke off. The copper pads will not damage the metal bluing on your Grandfather's rifle. That copper penny will work too on those subborn rust spots. The SC and the A are my favorite Marlin models--I bought a 336A 32 WSP from '49 last year and a '52 336SC 30-30 this year. You can't beat those 1950's Marlins!
