rusting parts

ok so i noticed this a few years ago with one of my previous guns, and now its happening to one of my more expensive builds.

every few days whenever i pull one of my m4's off my wall i notice that a lot of the parts have corroded with rust. primarily parts like the flash hider, bolt catch, receiver pins, anything thats really 'grey'. i live in niagara falls, and know theres a lot of moisture in the air, so what can i do to help prevent this?

someone told me keeping them in the gun case would prevent it from happening. but wheres the fun in that?

also, whats the best way to get the rust off without damagin or scratching anything? coca cola trick?

To prevent the gun from becoming rusted, keep it somewhere with little moisture.

After all games, when I clean my rifles, I use Outter's Gun Oil. I spill a stip of oil; rub it in, so it looks clean. Then rub it off with a microfiber cloth. Pins and such I drop a few drips in and wipe off the access.

Not only does this help with prevention but it also clears any existing rust issues.

Dehumidifier in the gun room?

Either that or some sort of rust protector on parts that do rust maybe? Something from Rusto (American Accents) or Krylon Rust prevention.

NOTE: DO NOT EVER USE WD-40 ON YOUR GUNS!! Although it does prevent rust (by displacing water) it also corrodes plastic.

Boeshield sounds like it might help but I've never used it on an airsoft gun so I can't say what it will or will not do to some of the other materials.
