...and new to the board. I've been "lurking" for a few weeks and you all have taught me so much. Anyway, this past February I purchased a Marlin 1894 in 44 mag/44spl., with a blued barrel. My decision was a simple matter of logistics...to carry a long arm with the same chambering(s) as my S&W Mod. 29. I haven't had the opportunity to fire the '94 yet, since I have otherwise been pre-occupied...BUT I have "broken the action in by many cyclings while watching TV. Afterwards I lightly oil those areas where my hands made contact with the metal. Tonight I discovered what APPEARS to be a RUST STAIN/BLEEDING on the right side of the Trigger Guard Plate and the Receiver. This has me wondering if there is similiar rusting along the seam of the two parts. As I said, aftrer cycling the action, I always lightly oil and wipe down metallic areas, ans as an aside my hands NEVER sweat and in fact, the skin on my hands is quite rough and dry. My questions are: has anyone else ever seen this and since I am going to have to "touch up" the blueing after I buff off the mar, which blueing agent do you believe will work best on this minor "Plastic Surgery"? It's not a large area, but noticable to me. Thank you all for any advise.
