A friend of mine spent a day in a duck blind last Wednesday with his Benelli Cordoba.  The blind was surrounded bu salt water but the gun was never dunked.  Dogs might have shook on it a bit after retrieving birds.  Rust blossomed all over the barrel and choke tube, which sticks out of the barrel, during the hunt.  The action metal was ok.  The barrel and choke originally had matte black finishs, but when I saw it Sunday it was brick red with rust. 

It was cleaned thoroughly immediately after the hunt with half a big can of wd-40  and a rag and still it looks horrible.  My friend said another fellow in the blind had a Benelli with blued metal and it had no problems at the end of the day.

Any one else heard of Cordoba's rusting like this?

Thanks. I'll pass the Gunzilla recommendation along, although it looked like to me the barrel was too far gone.

 It shouldn't hurt the action or function as long as it is only surface rust and it is prevented from further corrosion or pitting.
 Duck guns are supposed to look hideous, anyway.

It's just hard to accept that it happened that badly and that fast, when it didn't happen to a blued gun in the same blind.  I'm glad it's not mine!

Have a friend who owns an 1100 with bead blasted barrel.  Would surface rust after only a few hours when wet.  Generally prompt action with a decent gun oil took care of it and it is still working fine.

Good point. I've heard that bead blasted knives are more prone to rust, especially in marine environments.

Here's an update for those interested:  My friend took his Cordoba to the local dealer who he bought it from.  The dealer said he's seen a lot of Benelli's with the same problem.  (He also said the Remington shotguns with the matte beadblasted finish were bad too.)  Since the gun was 2 years old, he couldn't/wouldn't do anything for him.  My friend got most of the rust off with very fine steel wool and oil.  Now he's considering having a guy Duracoat it.
