6-pak questions

So, I am the proud owner of a new used 6-pak and I have a question regarding cleaning it.

What would be the easiest way to de-rust the 6-pak and maintain one?

And how are you supposed to load 12 grams through the load port? I find it easier to load them like a handgun magazine from the top

the loading port is to be used when you have atleast two(i think) 12 grams already in it. it's intended for keeping the 6-pak full of 12 grams.

what do you mean De-Rust??? pictures would help... i choose to leave mine as is and prevent further rust... dampen a paper towel with wd-40 and LIGHTLY wipe the areas of rust.

And how are you supposed to load 12 grams through the load port? I find it easier to load them like a handgun magazine from the top
Out of game: load from the top like any magazine, In Game: load through the port as long as there is a 12g engaged into the valve.

Overall i would HIGHLY advise against any type of "cleaning" i have bare metal spots on mine with no rust, these were built to be used and abused and they can take anything you throw at them. oil the valve assembly after each use (1 drop will do) and check the back check valve seat periodically for wear.

Not mine....it's blued steel, which when you think about it, is the purposeful "rusting" of metal but stopping it as the stage where it turns the metal blue.

I agree on the #0000 steel wool and if the metal becomes bare, re-blue it.
