As I’ve mentioned before I hunt waterfowl a lot.  Typically my gun gets wet and sometimes can show rust even before I get back to the vehicle.  If you have a gun with bluing on it you can manage small rust spots by spraying a small amount of Nitro Solvent and using the thin edge of a shiny copper penny to gently rub it away.  Works every time.  Give it a try.
