It depends on the finish. Polished blue is fine, does nothing to anything I've used it on. Matte blue, don't do it, you'll make a shiny spot. Stainless, don't know haven't tried it.
Not a gun thankfully, but I did develop light rusting on a stock 10/22 barrel and decided to to the steel wool and oil thing. Scratched it up and dulled it a bit; nothing too crazy but noticeable.

Though I'm not sure what type of steel wool I used, let me check and ill edit this post.

EDIT- ok, I used Norton Extra Fine 000 steel wool with Hoppe's oil (orange bottle)
