    I shot my steyr in the wet a couple of weeks ago, I shot 20 targets and retired because I was soaked, when I got home I stripped the steyr to see if any rain had got in, ther was water everywhere what surprised me was the hammer had already started to rust, any Ideas to avoid the rust on the hammer.

    High polish

    You need to polish it till it's like quality chrome, you will still need to keep an eye on it but it should extend it's rust free life.
    Most people as a rule polish the hammer any way.

    The hammers are Nickel plated so it wouldn't have been rust. The roller bearings and cocking lever and/or cocking pin are steel so it was probably that.
