Agreed!!! After this process is completed keep it lightly oiled.

Also make sure to wipe it down with a dry/clean cloth after its been subjected to moist conditions (rain, snow, humidity, etc) and then lightly oil to add a protective barrier.

My cousin in Tennessee has a lot of problems with moisture in his house. He kept his guns oiled but they continued to rust. He solved his problem by running a dehumidifier in his gun room.
