I would try one of the Big 45 stainless steel scrubbing pads with some gun oil to remove the rust, wipe it down, and run a lightly oiled rag on the metal when you're satisfied with the rust removal. Clean the rest of the metal the best you can with some Hoppe's #9, rags (shotgun cleaning patches work nicely for some of this too), toothbrushes, etc.

As for the wood, I have no advice for recovering from water damage. There is a Stocks forum on here that you should check.

Good luck. I have one of those old Italian Mark XXIIs too. A few dings on the stock but the metal was good. Fun to shoot.

Well that pic looks pretty good. Your stock has nicer looking wood than mine, which is pretty plain. So now we need pics of the rest of it. Plus some range results, since you said it is a shooter. Looking good. Take care of your magazine. Replacement mags are not common, let alone cheap.
