Do you have anything to add for the OP, or just feel the need for a little trolling.
Apparently Colt is sacred ground for the tribes, and when you had the audacity to mention another company winning the bit, it was like saying Colt lost the bid because they are crap guns or something. Especially on a thread with a topic of RUST on a brand new Colt barrel. I'm surprised the OP wasn't called a liar and adhomed until the thread was locked: but the night is young.

I think they are just easily upset and jump to any conclusion, right or wrong, and have to immediately go into defense mode.

Hopefully this is all it is.

But if it's not, at least you can be assured it is mil-spec rust

And like AR-15's, the military doesn't have specs for rust.

Well, I steel wooled the barrel today with some oil. It was rust and not factory preservative. It's still there but not as noticeable. It's not big enough of a deal to send back to Colt. I ordered some of the Corrosion X and will apply that when I get it. It looks good enough now that most people wouldn't notice it unless I pointed it out. Thanks to everyone for the help.

It's meant to be a working rifle. Shoot it, don't look at it!

I agree with those who say it is a tool meant to be used. I sent a weapon back to Colt, and it took months to get it back. It was a time Colt was not concerned with the civilian market.

I expect they issue with the rust spots may not be considered a flaw, but perhaps how it was stored.

It seems many of the weapons currently sold have been in storage a long time.

Some of my prized firearms are my everyday carry guns. They get holster wear and marks here and there. I maintain them as well as I can, but I understand, they will not be museum pieces.

It is sort of when you get a new car. When I was young, I went out of my way to keep my cars like new. Eventually, someone would door ding my car or crash a shopping cart into it. Once it is imperfect, I could stop worrying about the small things. Now, I use my vehicles and do not worry right from the dealership.

I would simply do the maintenance and cleaning regularly and use the weapon.
