I was wondering, when it rains, not like a heavy rain, but not a drizzle, if that

will mess up my remmington 870 express magnum? I ask this, because

tomorrow I plan on going hunting for rabbit/squirrel and there is rain

throughout the day, but they do not say heavy or light.

break it down, wipe it down and oil it down and you will be fine after your hunt.

Sorry, yes I was referring to after the hunt. But I do hope you gave the new weapon a cleaning and light oil after you got it.

True, think about Navy SEALS and their weapons and us old Special Forces types in all types of weather. Keep er clean when you can and she will serve you well.

Don"t use wd-40!!!!!!!!

Don't use WD-40!!!!!!!! For it's a penitraiting oil and it migrates in the firearm and if you use the gun for defense and thus store it loaded, it will sure as hell deactivate the primer. Won't that be a nifty surprise in the moment of truth. That was a one of the first thing cops learn about firearms care and maintance.

Do wipe it down with Rem-oil or other gun oil. In a survival situation motor oil will work, marvile's mystery oil ect. Just make sure it's not a pernetrating oil.

Best bet, Rem oil or go to surplus store and get some GI oil thats what I use a lot.
