And one way to prevent those condensation problems is to put a coat of something like wax on the gun. That said, condensation develops quickly from cold to heat - I notice it everytime I exit my truck and my glasses fog up. A gun sitting in a guncase that forms condensation then has that moisture surrounding it in the interior material of the case - if it is foam, even worse. It happened to my Beretta because I brought it home, didn't take it out right away because "I was going to get around to cleaning it later", and later became a week. Oil and a scrubbie used VERY LIGHTLY removed the rust. Now, I no longer do that; I will at least spray it down with RemOil or use this one washrag that is for nothing but gun oil (probably burn for a week if it ever caught fire)

Try Boeshield T9 Spray a lens wiping type cloth with it ,keep it in a ziplock bag and after a session or before even after a heavy rain wipe it down .
Being a Chemist , I've used most everything and then some including polymer coatings .
T9 relatively inexpensive convenient readily available .
I use it on table saw planer beds lathe chucks including tooling and have since late 70's

Not to dispute any of what You posted , Only will add different wax products have additional additives in them . Many are abrasive for that " Deep Shine " so choose wisely .

Pure carnuba is best type generally used for Mold release wax ,I've used near everyone's over #5 decades and have NO particular preference of brand .

This was handy : Meguiar’s 8 Max Mold Release Wax

FYI : I still prefer Boeshield T9 as for ease of application and protection and convenience
