Its called STAINLESS steel for a reason.


That was my thought exactly...although I didnt look or think far enough to see it was Al. Looking at my own pic it is completely obvious. Never heard abt the trans fluid though so I have gained some ideas here. Thanks everyone!

Don't kid yourself, stainless will rust also. As for the aluminum receiver, If you know someone that has a media blaster, that will clean it up nicely.

I would media blast the whole thing. The barrel will turn to a Ruger Target Grey color. I do all of my stainless smokeless builds in this manner.Looks pretty good IMO.

Amen...one of the biggest misconceptions I used to run into in the gun business. I would have guys swear up and down they had to have a SS rifle so it would be "all weather" or even better guys that wouldn't have a muzzleloader unless it had a SS barrel. I'd tell them you know SS will still rust. Of course, they would argue with me adamantly until a pulled a SS gun down off the shelf that had been there a while and had been handled a lot only to see it had indeed some light rust. Rust may not be the right term technically, but SS will pit and it will oxidize.
