I have a Ruger American I carry in the Kubota. What is the best and most durable method of rust proofing it?

Normally I'd agree on wd40, but in a dusty environment it'll turn into a dirty mess I would think.

Yup.

Or clean with acetone, and shoot it with Krylon.

I tried the painting on a rifle years ago. Paint would get scratched and then rust. I have seen WD 40 kill primers and it is very dusty here. I don't bring it in when it rains. Only time I clean it is if I shoot it. What is cerakote? scratch easily? Long lasting? How much to do a rifle? How long does it take?

That one isn't bad. I use ultra bore coat on the inside but that specialist works well on an OU.

I would get a stainless gun for something like that. When I lived 20 miles inland from the Gulf Coast, I quit buying blued guns altogether, and didn't start buying them again until I moved up into the high desert.

Cerakote won't hold up to constant rubbing for to long if your not using a rifle holder of some sort. I have several cerakoted rifles that have rubbed down to bare metal from riding in the truck. Mostly on the end of the brake and along the ridges of the flutes. I will say I'm hard on hunting rifles and rarely use a case.

I am also hard on this one. It never sees the inside of the house unless I clean the bore. It is like a tool that you carry with you all the time. Thanks for the information on the cerakote. If it rubs off then I am no better off than I am now. Will have to start greasing it up more.

It chips, too and it's ugly.
