We would recommend applying a light coat of Rem-Oil to the exterior metal finish of your firearm both before you leave to hunt and during your normal post-hunt cleaning routine. Also, you should take some additional Rem-Oil with you into the field so that as soon as your hunt has ended and you are out of the adverse weather you can re-treat the metal finish with the Rem-Oil. Be sure not to store the gun in a tightly confined area (i.e. gun case) until it has been cleaned and allowed the opportunity to dry.
