I have a 1895 in 45-70 that I picked up about two years ago. It is of 1972 vintage with ballard rifling, nice polish and almost perfect blueing. This is one of about 120 rifles that I currently own and I have always taken extraoridinary care of them. In spite of this, I can't seem to keep this one free of rust. I took it bear hunting last year and put a light coat of CLP on it every day. In places where it rubbed against my jacket the humidity alone caused small brown speckles to appear. One day I got rained on and this gun had brown freckles all over it before I even left the stand for the day. I've been caught in the rain with a gun before but never had these results. Today, I took it out of the gun rack where it had been for about two weeks and noticed that where the barrel is contacting the felt rest, there is more brown. Enough to come off on my finger and had to be removed with steel wool. I checked every other gun in the rack and the rest were perfect as usual. Even the rest of my Marlins, mostly 40's and 50's vintage were all fine. What is going on with this one?
