A buddy of mine decided to touch up a mosin he had without taking it apart (I told him he shouldn't but he did it anyways) and got a bit of stain on some of the metal parts. Most of the stain is on the barrel bands. Is there something he can use that:

1) Will get the stain off?

2) Won't hurt the metal?

Thanks for the assistance
:oji:

Paint thinner usually works, and does not damage the blue.

You'd be surprised what WD40 will remove.
or acetone
0000 steel wool and oil
