Depends on how deep the rust has gone into the metal.. if its superficial, a mixture of Diesel & Kerosine oil will be quite helpful but if the rust is deep enough it will be very hard to remove.

Dear Khan Bro, Diesel & Kerosene Oils is sure effective, but please also look for the actual depth of the "Rust" and what sort of damage has it done to the metal !!!

May be some pictures of mentioned parts will help you & forum to guide you accordingly !!

use WD 40 to open the internals and afterwards dip the parts in the diesel and kerosine.

@mujtabakhan just dip your revolver in the kerosine oil/diesel for a while,the parts will start moving.
@makz use steel wool (used for washing dishes) to remove rust.Just dip the gun parts in the diesel/kerosine oil mixture and rub it with the wool.I have used similar method on one of very old rusted winchester.

Respected HussainAli, Madham and Ka_Khan brothers,

Thank you very much for your concern and advice...

WD 40 is a perfume/body spray type thing. But you have to use it on the gun (or any metal that has formed rust). lolz.

It is available at different gun shops, as well as hardware stores.

WD stands for "Water Displacement", WD-40 is the trademark name of a water-displacing spray developed in 1953. It was designed to repel water and prevent corrosion. The long-term active ingredient is a non-volatile, viscous oil which remains on the surface, providing lubrication and protection from moisture.

But its not recommended for long term protection.

off-course WD-40 is not suitable if someone want to store for long time.

@mujtabakhan WD-40 is a very common product and available at hardware stores as well as electronics market.

TAHA and NISAR brothers, thank you very much for your concerns.

I dipped revolver in the mixture of diesel/kerosine oil and place the Pot in sunlight. Tempreture was 43 C on that day. After 4 to 5 hours, i cleaned it with tooth brush and pistol cleaning brush and after a little effort i opened it. Then i throughly cleaned it and used oil for proper lubrication.

Thanks to members for advices.... :)

Aoa, I wanted to ask if any one can tell me how to clean the cf98 body? right now I am just using a micro fibre cloth for it.
Secondly, is it necessary to clean gun with Hoppes solvent after every shooting session or I can just use brush and clean it thoroughly after 1000 rounds or may be 500?

Dear Shobi Bro, "NOT" cleaning your Gun after every shoot within 24 hours is a SIN for Gun Enthusiast.
