I have a nice Xisco Xs60c Co2 rifle, it looks beautiful and shoots beautiful.

I have recently noticed some rust on the screw cap for the bleeding screw and co2 chamber. Does anyone know how to fix this?

I have also noticed that the bolt has some black marks on it, is there a way to fix that?

Lastly, does anyone have any recommendation on any specific type of gloves to wear to not get fluids form my hand on the gun any more, but still be able to load pellets and shoot nicely?

Thanks.

You can use a cold-bluing solution to cover up the rust and bluing loss. Make sure you following the instructions.

No need to wear special gloves, just wipe the metal down with a bit of oil after shooting.

Any type of oil, as long as you don't get it in the seals with some oils that make run them. I use non detergent 30 weight motor oil.

You can also use car wax instead of oil on the metal, and the wood.
