It will take a little work, but it will work really well. First, clean the entire exterior of the rifle with wax & grease remover, or rubbing alcohol. You are trying to remove all traces of old oil and lubricants. You need to wear latex gloves while you do this so that your skin oils do not contaminate any cleaned metal surfaces. Now get you some good liquid, or paste, car wax. Using an acid brush, or a Q-tip, apply the wax to all metal surfaces that you want protected. Put the gun up somewhere safe to allow the wax to dry. The next day, apply a second coat over-top of the first coat. Again, let it sit over-night to dry.
You can wipe off the dried wax if you like, but I prefer to leave it on there as extra protection. You can reapply new coats of wax at any time. Try and be conscious about touching metal surfaces with your bare hands. Always try and pick up the gun, and handle it, by only touching the stock, or sling. This will go a LONG way towards preventing rust. The wax will really help should you forget and grab a metal surface.
