Default Rust removal

What would one use to get some of this rust off?

Thanks in advance.

Frontier Pad with a solvent like Hoppe's. Soak the rust for several hours before starting with the Frontier Pad.

Is that the Fox HE?

Nope.

Its a soon to be new arrival which I couldn't resist as the wood is in great shape.

12 ga VHE 32 inch...

I may have bitten off more then I can chew which would mean it will end up just north of me at Fjeline's!

We shall see how it ends up.

This appears to be a gun kept in a "textured foam" lined case. In damp conditions. For a LONG time. Even with the rust gone, those barrels will require refinish. And probably some rust pit repair.

Easy?! I can see the pits from here. I suggest you get this gun to a professional double gun 'smith. Putting it back right is not a job for the hobbyist...
