Mostly IHC parts, appears original lmr barrel that measures a 1. It did have some splotches under the wood as well.
I have had the best luck using a penny as a scraper, gently working at it with some oil or bore cleaner on the rust, wiping it off often with more of the same solution to check progress. You have to use a penny that is old enough to be all copper. Using 0000 Steel Wool never really worked well for me. The penny is more gentle on the Parkerizing.
