      probably, but I can't magically see the condition of your gun unless you post pics of it.

          Spray with Kroil, scrub it with a stiff toothbrush/nylon brush, and wipe it down with oil. I'm going to go out on a limb and say your storage practices are not good at all. Don't keep it in anything without a large desiccant packet. Foam in cases will pull oil off of the finish as well.

              I mean yeah, you're in Arizona and it's brand new? That's pretty fricked anon. Honestly, if you're planning on keeping it, just give it a camo spray paint job like picrel (or that best suits your location) and be done with it. Otherwise I'd clean it up as best you can and trade it in for something else. That's ridiculous

                They can be found for $680 online, and it's a niche gun that a store knows is going to sit on the shelf for a while compared to other guns. They're also going to leave enough meat on the bone for a profit obviously which drives your trade in down even lower. I doubt you're going to get an offer you'd be okay with taking unless youre fine throwing money away after owning it for only 4 months. Selling it privately would net you a bigger return, but that will take time, and again it's pretty niche so the costumer base will be small, meaning your listing will sit for a while. I'd look into getting it warrantied first and foremost, if that doesn't go your way, you can see what you could get trade in value wise, but you'll 100% lose money on it unfortunately. Go the warranty route first

      >paint rust
      Uh no, paint is supposed to prevent rust by sealing the surface of the metal but obviously most paints wear off easily. If there wasn't a thick enough layer of paint to begin with, or your blueing is shit, it's got nothing protecting the metal. You have to repaint or refinish it. At that point I'd go for a ceramic coat, Duracoat is the easiest.

    AK's are engineered to be at least 15% rusted at all times. It's called reverse-lubroxidity, the particulate tangent emulsifies the carbon nano-baxters, permitting frangible demarcation. For more info google "how to kill myself".

      how was it stored and what kinda climate? that is some shit though, the finish shouldn't rust like that regardless. From what I see you should be fine with a bit of WD-40 and a good scrub. If that won't get rid of it you'll need an actual rust remover like CLR but anything like that will affect the finish if it sits too long. I would try it on a less noticable spot and see if it starts to burn the finish. To be honest though that parkerizing is fricked if it rusted this soon, If you can you should cerakote it.

          Lmao I told a guy from Arizona to keep his gun out of the foam shit box and he boasted about being from Arizona. OP those foam pads suck and humidity still exists everywhere, even at the lowest levels there is still water in the air, why is this hard for people to understand (not directing that at you specifically). Get some clp and get to rubbing, it should mostly come off eventually.

          You're storing someplace where moisture is an issue. It's too close to your bathroom. Typical of Arizona, you likely keep your AC cranked up and you take long hot ass showers. You obviously don't have proper venting of your bathroom close to wherever that weapon is.. So you have that rifle at let's say 67°F.. Your showers are let's say 113°F, so your bathroom gets to 95°F at 100% humidity. You open up your bathroom and a mass of Louisiana swamp air in early August flys into your bedroom where that 67°F rifle is sitting.. And THAT'S how you get rust like that in AriFrickingZona. Take it to a good gunsmith and see about getting it properly parkerized. They'll get the rust off and get it properly protected. Follow their advice on proper care. Then get a fricking exhaust vent for your bathroom.. Is there mold on your bathroom ceiling?

    Ok fine anon I'll rip the bandaid off and tell you what none of these pussies will:

    Pioneer Arms AKs are dogshit. You bought a dogshit gun. If you shoot it at a moderate schedule it will start to fall apart and the finish is clearly fricking terrible.

    Clean the rust off, get it looking presentable, sell it to some poor frick just like yourself who can't be bothered to google what AKs are good and bad, then buy a Zastava ZPAP92. I'd recommend that you buy a Draco but based on this thread in 4 months you'd probably be posting a VSKA pistol asking why it's having out of battery detonations and is it normal to be constantly finding metal shavings in your receiver.

    If you actually like it pay a store to cerakote it down the line. You could spray paint it yourself as a cheaper route, prep it good first. You overpaid and it'll sell for shit. Check gundeals dot com before buying things and find an FFL with cheap transfer fees. I bought a gun $200 cheaper than the store I do transfers too it's ridiculous what gun stores charge

      I bought all my guns from stores so,
      Yeah I agree, I wont lie I just recently got into shooting guns and I just got the gun fever and bought these without thinking carefully, you know. And so I will definitely try to buy em online from now on or at least just dont buy it straight away first.

        Definitely check gun deals dot com for price checks. Like if the gun store is within $100 it can be worth getting the thing you want right away, shipping and FFL fee is always a factor too. But I was looking at a CZ-P10S and my local store had it for $550 and it was $350 online. Frick that shit man. Since you're new I'd also add that we're in the best times to get into AR-15's and for whatever reason you can get lots of really good 9mms for cheap. Stack those now if they interest you. The CZ P10 line is cheap as well as Steyr pistols. Like $350 cheap for what should be $600.
