    Few questions about a new gun....

    Howdy folks, I have a few questions about a gun I picked up used today. I bought a Springfield Ultra Compact 1911 .45ACP for a great price but it had an issue. Not a big one but I still want to fix it.

    If you notice in the grooves on the slide there is a little bit of crud in there. I don't know if it is rust or what but it wasn't easy to clean out of there. If it was rust how can I prevent that in the future? Second question is this is the ultra compact and I would like to find some nice grips for it, Anyone have personal experience with a website that they recommend? (I'm looking for high quality) And last but not least: Isn't it purty?

    Yes, it's purty. Can't help you with the grips, but I bought some CorrosionX For Guns for some rust on my LCP and for an antique flintlock I have. So far it's done a good job of taking it off and keeping it off.

    Make sure after you get the rust off, that you keep a thin film of RemOil or some other type of gun oil to keep the metal from oxidizing.

    Grips... eh, I have a revolver with a rubber grip and some plastic guns, so can't help ya there.
