Tip of the Week #1: Electrolytes
Seawater is a natural, organic, environmentally-friendly alternative to other metal preservatives. Try filling a bottle of salted water (use the industry-standard ratio of 2 tablespoons per quart). Then, every other day, give your guns a brief misting with the seawater simulant. Repeat for as long as you wish to preserve your firearms.
If you notice a red or brown coloration forming on your firearms, that’s called a “patina” and is an important part of the preservation process. Once it forms a complete patine on all parts, it will fall off naturally.
Remember: seawater contains electrolytes. It’s what firearms crave.
