What brand of solvent to clean rust off the outside barrel of a colt revolver without it damaging the bluing

I use Breakfree CLP on everything. If rust is stubborn, you may have to go with some 000 steel wool, which will remove at bit of the bluing. The important thing is to get rid of the rust ASAP, try the clp and soft cloth first. Let it soak in. Do it few days consecutively. Good luck!

Don't use a solvent. Use dry copper wool.

Copper wool isn't nearly as abrasive as steel! But I didn't stop to think his piece might be *seriously* rusted. I have to go with your answer as correct, lol.
