    How to clean a rusty bayonet?

    Hello everyone,

    I am looking for tips from experts on how to clean my new find - a bayonet! I want to keep it for myself and I'm going to clean it properly.

    I've gently tapped the screws at the liners - I have to also tap the nuts on the other side because the screw turns with the nut. Just in case, I already bought replicas with screws.

    At the beginning I sprayed some fluid similar to WD40 and gently rubbed off the first layer of rust. For the second part of, so to say maintenance, I thought to buy CX80 rust remover and after removing the liners, put the bayonet into a container filled with a rust remover. Would that work?
