Default Rusty barrel

What is the best way to polish the inside of a barrel ?

I took my barrel & cylinder off the pro target to be nickel plated, when there I specifically said that NO WATER must get inside either, he said no problem, we'll plug the ends up, now he was very confident that nothing would get inside as I said I won't have it done if it was going to
Went in today & there is evidence of rust just inside on the threads in the cylinder & ends of the barrel. I got home & polished the barrel with autosol & patches, then oil to finish, the cylinder I cleaned up & oiled, still not sure if I will use that though

Is there anything else I can use if the barrel is crap ?
Bloody annoyed with the platers though
In life you should not persue goals that are easily achieved, develop an instinct for what can be only just achieved through your greatest efforts.
