Cheap way to refinish a gun barrel?

I was given and old 20ga that has rust on it. I wanted to sand it done myself and have someone re-blue it but I was told that would cost around $100. Shotgun isnt even worth that(Western field model 149). He said I could try that cold bluing kit but from his experience it sucked.
So are there any cheap options to refinish the gun and have it last?

How rusty? you should not try to destroy the petina of the gun by sanding it down.

That said, Naval Jelly is supposed to remove the blue. Most cold blues will work well with multiple applications on a clean and sandblasted barrel. I think Perma-Blue is what most will recommend. Check surplusrifle.com.

From personnal experience, stay away from the paste form of blueing. It sucks.

Its rusted pretty good. I took some 0000 steel wool and gun cleaning oil to the end of it. I got the rust knocked down but I can still see splotches where the rust was. Im pretty sure Im gonna have to have it sandblasted and sand it smooth then blu it to make it look nice.
