Thread: Help: dried blood on a stainless barrel.

  1. #1

    Help: dried blood on a stainless barrel.

    Went stalking this morning and got blood on my rifle barrel. Had to go to work so rifle went in cabinet dirty. Just got it out for a rub down with WD40 and the blood wont come off. It appears i've stained my stainless.

    Grateful for any advice.

    If it's a textured finish, vapour or sand, then in desperation a fine scotch brite pad.
    There are also paste type acid formulas available that welders use to remove heat discolouration, seems to not affect surrounding areas.
    As a first move though I would try any of the kitchen type multi surface cleaners, worked for me on a polished s/s knife blade.
    Start with the milder types, (Mr Muscle) before moving on to Cillet bang or similar.

    Be careful with abrasive polishes, you can end up with a shiny spot very easily.

    Have you tried cold water with cotton wool or lint free cloth

    You must sell it immediately, its totally unacceptable to have a hunting rifle in that condition.

    This may sound ridiculous, but toothpaste is a very fine abrasive. You could try it for nothing !! Use the wife's brush !
